Boundary research and reports

A full boundary survey can be expensive -- a daunting consideration, especially if you haven’t decided whether to buy the parcel or not. Sometimes we can perform enough research to generate a report indicating approximate boundary locations, approximate acreage, and potential problems (overlaps etc). This can be especially useful when dealing with a large, rural parcel for which the existing “deed description" is vague or ambiguous (as is often the case). Cost is usually a small fraction of that of a boundary survey and the product can usually serve as the basis for a subsequent survey if need be. The report may or may not include a sketch depicting the parcel, but the sketch could not be considered a "survey" and would not be suitable for recording.
