Property Survey

  • A property surveyor is arranged by title agency to survey the property. The survey is a layout of the property lines and shows all of the improvements (home, garage, driveway, fences, patio, etc.)   

 

  • The survey provides the legal description of what you are buying and also shows if there are any encroachments, i.e.: improvements that extend over a property line.   It also shows any easements on the property as well as any building setback requirements.

 

  • As with the title insurance, the cost of the survey is paid by the buyer at closing.    The cost is usually $350 for a condominium certificate, $725 for a normal size property, or more for large properties.
