A boundary survey is essential to determine the perimeter of a property before buying, improving, or building on any parcel of land. Northwest Survey & GPS licensed professional surveyors have experience performing these surveys as a part of pre-construction due diligence.
The services of a licensed land surveyor are generally required to conduct boundary surveys.
A boundary survey is recommended before buying, subdividing, improving, or building on land in Bellingham, Whatcom County, WA. Surveying the parcel before these activities ensures that the expense and frustration of defending a lawsuit, moving a building, or resolving a boundary dispute can be avoided. Determining the location of legal land ownership lines may minimize real estate transactional risk and are required by many title and lending companies to minimize risk of their transaction.
The boundary survey is based on two key components: land records research and a field survey. Document research includes review of available records including title certificates, deeds, part surveys, easements, and subdivision maps. Once the historic boundaries of the property have been identified, the land surveyor will take physical measurements of the site. Both sets of data are then compared to determine if there are any discrepancies.
