Property Surveyors in NJ

Property Surveyors

What is a property survey?

A property survey is the sketch of land showing the property boundaries and the topographic details. Residential property surveys determine the location of the house or building. Surveys are also done for commercial properties. The survey maps are the records which are essential while settling disputes related to property, determining land value and ownership. Surveys are generally done when the property is to be sold to avoid any fraud in the transaction.


Property surveyors are hired to draw property maps. These people study the property in order to determine its boundaries and find exactly what is owned as per the papers.
Property surveyors, before conducting any survey, do some research about the job. They may be privately hired or through some surveying company.

Property surveyors precisely measure the boundaries with the measuring instruments necessary. If not surveyed properly, contractors may run into problems. As the construction project progresses, the surveyors will keep a close eye on the elevations and record them. These are very important and should not be ignored, as the designs depend on the elevation measurements.

Property surveyors today are using modern sophisticated tools, while chalk and compasses are still being used in some circumstances. GPS devices give an exact picture and help the surveyors to do their job accurately. However, surveyors still use a great deal of care to verify their work. They take measurements with multiple instruments and check if there are any differences to be sure they are getting the most accurate results.
Property surveyors send the survey reports to their clients and will explain their findings to them. If there is a legal dispute involved with the property, they may have to go to the court to present their findings, though it is rare.


Property surveyors have the knowledge and required skills to do the job. If you want your property to be surveyed quickly and accurately, hire a property surveyor!
