Surveying & Technical Services FAQ

What kind of survey do I need?

The type of survey that you will need depends on many different factors. It is best to speak with one of our Project Managers to determine what type of survey you will need.

What are our billing rates?

For specific costs on a project, please contact our office.

How much will a survey cost?

There are no set prices for surveys. The price of a survey depends on many factors such as:

  • the size of the parcel
  • how the parcel was created
  • the type of survey needed
  • how far the site is from our office.

For us to give you an accurate price of a survey we will need to know what type of survey you will need and the property description of the parcel. Click here for a quote

When do I need a survey?

  • When purchasing or selling land
  • Before land is subdivided by deed or subdivision
  • When a lending institution or title company requires a survey
  • Before building a house, fence, septic system or other improvements close to the property line
  • When required by local authorities prior to the issuance of a building or other permit
  • For drainage planning, topographical and subsurface utility studies
  • When the property line location is in question and/or an encroachment is suspected

How do I find my property pins?

  • Finding your property pins so that you may build a fence or a garage can be difficult or can be very easy depending on the information that you have and how lucky you are. When looking for your property pins you will first need a drawing of your lot with dimensions of how long the property lines are. Sometimes you are provided with an Improvement Location Certificate (ILC) at the time of closing when you purchase your property. This ILC will show the relationship of your house to your property lines with lengths of the property lines. If do not have an ILC you can contact the municipality in which you live and ask them where you can get a copy of the Subdivision Plat that contains your lot. This Plat will show the dimensions of the lot that your house is on.
  • Once you obtain a drawing with dimensions you can begin looking for your pins. Most people know where at least one of their property pins are located (a property pin is a metal bar with a 1″ diameter plastic cap on it). From this pin you can use the dimensions shown on the drawing to locate the rest of your pins. A good metal detector helps a lot.
  • If you are still having a difficult time finding your property pins they just may not be in. Please feel free to contact our office for additional information or to have us come out and look for your property pins for you.
