When to Contact a Land Surveyor
Many Aventura residents hire a surveyor to assess and evaluate the property. Times when one would need a professional include:
A land surveyor can determine the boundaries of your property to ensure you are buying the amount of land you think you are. Property owners should be aware of their property lines for a number of reasons.
You may find that a neighbor’s fence cuts into your yard or that a hazardous feature is your responsibility. Homeowners can be held responsible for injuries or damage sustained on their property due to neglect, such as a tree limb falling.
Not only should you have the land surveyed before purchasing it, but your lender may also require it. As part of the appraisal process, the mortgage company may require a property survey to verify its value. Your house or structure has one value, and your land has a separate value.
For example, a water feature or additional structure may add value to the property. But if it is several yards over the property, you may not be purchasing all of the added features.
Lenders and banks want to reduce the risk on their investments by preparing for worst-case scenarios. One way is to purchase insurances to cover damages should something occur.
A land surveyor can analyze the elevation of the nearest floodplain in relation to your property. This determination can mean the difference between paying high monthly insurance payments and certification that your land is not at risk or high risk.
Considering installing a fence or doing some landscaping? Just like confirming your property line at the time of purchase, a survey can save you from many concerns before starting a project.
A survey can also help you plan your improvement projects and keep them within your land boundaries. For landscaping, a survey gives you precise measurements so you can more accurately estimate soil, gravel, and other products needed for your yard.
Likewise, it can save you from expensive costs down the road. For example, a dying tree between you and your neighbor could cost thousands to remove and thousands more if it causes damages. In those cases, it is incredibly valuable to know whose property it sits on.
Most homes and structures sit in the middle of the property. However, this is not always the case. If you plan on an addition, such as a garage, you will need to verify it will not encroach into your neighbor’s land.
Surveying your property will help in the planning process as your architect gauges how big and how far setback the new structure can be. In addition to property lines, an Aventura surveyor can determine easements and other restrictions.

How We Serve Aventura
Just North of Miami and beach adjacent, Aventura is one of the best places to live in Florida. Just ask any of its nearly 38 thousand residents. In addition to having beautiful outdoor spaces, the city is home to one of the largest shopping malls in the country.
Aventura, FL, has an average elevation of three feet above sea level. The city is only 3.5 square miles and only 2.7 square miles island. Nearly a quarter of Aventura is water, including Dumfoundling Bay. Like many places in South Florida, some Aventura homes and properties are subject to flood risks.
The City of Aventura participates in the Miami-Dade County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS), which is a program intended to reduce risk to lives and property from hazards. The county government recommends the following tips to mitigate flood risks:
- Assess your property’s risk for flooding, storm surges, and high winds.
- Purchase insurance to cover damages and injuries.
- Protect your property, such as through grading or reinforcing seawalls.
The area also sees plenty of rainfall, particularly in the summer. The wet season also brings hurricane season, which can influence your property’s value and insurance costs.
