When to call for surveying services
For those new to property ownership, here are some of the most common reasons people call us to come out and carry out a survey on their property:
The median house price in Fort Pierce is in the range of $200,000. Most people buying a home will apply for a mortgage or some other form of finance.
Financial institutions, banks, and lenders will often request a survey of the property. This is to make sure their money is secure in the value of the property.
Having a survey completed is part of the appraisal process when borrowing money against a property. It’s also a way to get peace of mind that there aren’t any issues you wouldn’t otherwise be aware of.
Even if it’s not a requirement for taking out finance, a lot of homeowners call us to survey the land or property they have an interest in buying.
Even if the previous owners live at the property for most of their lives, it doesn’t mean they know exactly where their boundaries are.
The only way to truly know where the boundaries of a property are is by doing professional survey. Our technicians will also identify any easements and unknowns on your land.
This informs where you – and your neighbors – can or can’t build. This will help you avoid those potentially explosive neighborly disputes. It also helps value your property more accurately
With a total land area of around 20 square miles and 6 of those square miles being water, residents of Fort Pierce are no strangers to water.
If your property falls into a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), your insurance company will require a water survey to assess the risk of flooding.
Likewise, if you’ve made alterations to your property to reduce the risk of flooding, you’ll likewise need an survey to record the update. Either way, it’s almost always a legal requirement, and it gives landowners peace of mind.
If you’re planning on making any changes or improvements to your land, you should do a survey first.
This is the only way you can be sure that you’re not overstepping your boundaries into your neighbor’s land. A survey will also highlight any potential issues underground, such as easements and unknowns.
In addition to this, it’s often a requirement from your local office to be granted planning permission. So, we always advise people to speak with their local office first, then let us know what they said.
Adding an extension and increasing the square footage of your home is a great way to increase its value. It has to be done properly, however, or it can end up costing you more in the long run.
Just as when you make changes to the landscape on your land, a survey will highlight any potential issues that may arise when planning renovations and additions.
As well as surveying your property for suitability, we’ll also draw up plans for you. This will help your construction company plan their work. As well as satisfying local planning laws and your insurance company.
