What is a Property Survey?
So, imagine you're playing a game of tag in your backyard. You need to know where your yard ends and where the neighbors begin, right?
Or you might need to know where you can build a pool without hitting any underground pipes or wires. A home survey is like a map that helps with that!
A surveyor, like a special land detective, uses special tools to find out where the boundaries of your property are, where the house sits on that land, and where things like driveways, fences, and other structures are.
They also can find out where underground things like pipes and wires are.
So, a home survey is like a treasure map of your property, showing all the important things about the land your house sits on!
A new survey is required if the previous survey has new improvements that must be surveyed.
