At Diamond Land Surveying, one of the most frequently asked questions we encounter is why anyone would need a property survey in Utah. Luckily, that’s an easy question to answer!
If you’re thinking of building a new home or improving the one you have, then you very likely will need a property survey. Property surveys allow those designing the changes and building them to create a concrete plan to move forward. Plus, property surveys give homeowners as well as future or potential buyers the information they need to properly assess a property.
Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider contacting a South Jordan land surveyor.
Making Upgrades to Your Home
Any homeowner who wants to do a permanent upgrade to their home or property should consider having a property survey. The types of improvements we’re talking about include putting in a pool, building a pool house, putting up a fence, and adding a driveway – just to name a few.
Property surveys tell the person reading it what type of features the land they’re building on has and helps to ensure that the proper codes of the local building department are being followed. Permanent upgrades done without a survey can run into trouble down the line.
Building New Construction
If you’re planning a new construction project or an addition to an existing structure, then you might also need a property surveyor.
A survey will help with plans and will act as the map used to lay out the features of the project. Again, it makes sure that new construction is abiding by local codes and is something that any engineer or architect will want for the project.
Selling Land or Acquiring a Mortgage
If you plan to sell land you own or acquire a mortgage for a parcel of property, then a property survey is an important consideration. These surveys let the buyer and the seller know exactly what is involved in the transaction and is typically part of the due diligence required for any real estate transaction.
Determine Plot Size
One of the basic functions of a property survey is to tell you how large a piece of property is and determine where what you own begins and ends.
This is vital for any homeowner who wants to make changes to their property, to sell it, or to settle disputes with neighbors – which happen more often than you may think. With a survey in hand, you can resolve boundary disputes you may have with neighbors or municipalities.
Calling on an experienced land surveyor can give you peace of mind and help protect your real estate investments.
