Why Plat Surveys Are So Expensive & What Is Involved

 

A plat is a graphic representation of a tract of land used to subdivide, combine or develop. Different cities use the platting process to insure property is responsibly developed through different types of plats and different requirements. In general, the city wants to know what you want to do with the property.

 

Platting starts with giving the city current information on the following items:

  • boundary and easement location
  • improvements
  • street rights-of-way
  • utility locations
  • drainage
  • tree locations
  • information on the property in the general vicinity

 

Depending on the complexity of the area, this may take some time to compile and present to the city in a format that is acceptable to them and includes all required documentation and fees. The fees can range from a couple hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the city and the intended use.

 

Next, the city will need to know what you want to do with the property to determine if it fits with the planned use in the area and if the required infrastructure is in place. This may require an engineer to review and certify to specific aspects. This step also requires review from multiple departments within a city to insure compliance with zoning and building codes as well as compliance with city ordinances and restrictions that can involve several days to several months. This review allows them to issue building permits once compliance is verified.

 

The final plat and documentation can then be submitted for final review. Once reviewed and approved the plat can then be filed in the County Records.

  90. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!

  91. This is completely dependent conectado phone
    make, for instance if you have a Sony Xperia you’ll need to unlock the bootloader via
    PC. If for example.

  92. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  93. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the
    guide in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a
    few percent to power the message house a
    bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read.

    I’ll definitely be back.

  94. I just couldn’t depart your web site prior to suggesting that I really enjoyed the usual information an individual supply
    on your guests? Is going to be again often in order to inspect new posts

  95. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout
    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.

  96. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this blog. Additionally, a misconception regarding the financial institutions intentions whenever talking about foreclosures is that the bank will not have my payments. There is a certain quantity of time that the bank can take payments in some places. If you are also deep in the hole, they will commonly desire that you pay the payment in full. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of installments at all. If you and the lender can find a way to work anything out, the actual foreclosure process may end. However, if you continue to pass up payments in the new approach, the foreclosure process can pick up from where it left off.
