When To Hire NYC Land Surveyors
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 survey company.
Encroachments and Right-of-way Issues
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.
