A property survey is a sketch of a specific property that can include details on topography, set back lines, and easements. Surveys will also note any structures that violate easements or set back lines as well, noting any structure encroachments. The primary purpose of the survey is to verify, describe and map the boundary lines and existing structures on the land. This process helps identify potential problems by confirming any issues that may currently exist with a particular property. Lenders and buyers benefit by knowing about any violations or encroachments up front. Completing this process prior to a title transfer also gives the buyer the option of buying extended title insurance coverage. Property surveys normally reference the following: Property Boundaries, Easements, Encroachments, Survey Title Coverage.Learn More
