It is not uncommon for people in NYC to assume the only two times you need to hire land surveyors is when you are buying a home or when you are selling a home. There are even some people who may argue if there is a fence around the home or agreed upon property lines by the current owner; a surveyor is not needed in either of these cases.
In fact, it is
imperative to call on the services of land surveyors during any
property sale and purchase. Not only does this prevent problems at a
later point when it is discovered the assumed property line is
incorrect, but it may be required by the lender.
In addition to
buying or selling a home or commercial property, there are other
times that a survey may be required. In some cases, neighborhood
disputes over fences, property lines, and even whether trees are on
one property or the other are a reason to call a professional land
It is not uncommon
for land surveyors in NYC to be called in for claims of an
encroachment on the property. An encroachment occurs when one
property owner builds or modifies a structure, typically a house,
garage, shed or fence, and it extends into the neighbor’s property.
When the property line is in dispute, this can be a cause of ongoing
conflict and problems.
A right-of-way is
the permission given by a property owner for someone else to travel
across the property. A survey can be used to clearly establish this
space and to calculate compensation. An easement, which is more
general and may allow for different types of land use, is another
example of a situation where a survey can be of benefit.
