What is a Boundary Survey?


At the surface, boundary surveys may seem like simple measurements of a particular property or area of land. However, the process of conducting a proper boundary survey is much more in-depth, requiring the skills and in-the-field know-how of a professional team like Waterloo Surveyors.

Essentially, a boundary survey serves to identify the property's boundary lines with precision. In this meticulous process, the surveyor sets or recovers the property corners and produces a detailed plat or map. This involves extensive research into documentation, including previous surveys, property deeds, and public land records to ensure accuracy.

Our approach to boundary surveys encompasses more than just physical measurements of the property. We aim to provide the highest quality boundary surveys, which also include a comprehensive analysis of the legal parameters of the property, providing an official written record of its boundaries. In this detailed process, we combine physical measurements with historical document research and investigation, culminating in the precise delineation of property limits. Additionally, the survey takes into account adjacent property boundaries to identify any existing or potential conflicts, making it invaluable for real estate needs, property dispute issues, land development, and easement location.
