Whether you have just purchased a piece of property, are about to purchase one, or have had the title to it for a while, it’s important to make sure the survey is up to date. Therefore, there are several reasons why you would want to keep the survey up-to-date.
Reasons for an Updated Survey
Any time you plan to do anything with the land, you need to make sure the survey plat is completely updated. Alterations to the property (or to lands neighboring it), changes in ownership, making subdivisions, granting easements, and so forth all require a clear description of the property. This helps protect your investment and prevent lawsuits over property issues. For example:
- If you’re purchasing the land, you don’t want any surprises due to changes that were not accounted for.
- If you plan to develop the land, you need to know what is in your rights to do and have a clear marking of where the boundaries are. Certain locations may limit what you can do with your property.
- If you are trying to sell the land, having a current survey will ensure you and your buyers know exactly what you are selling.
- If neighboring property has been developed, it may impact the state of your land.
Any time you do something with the land, you should get the survey updated. Even if you are not planning anything any time soon, keeping an up-to-date survey in your records at all times is still beneficial. Changes made to neighboring plots of land, for example, could lead to issues down the line if they overstep their bounds. Having a current land survey will ensure your rights to your land are protected.
