To give you a better idea of some of the reasons why our technicians are called out, here are some of the common reasons residents of Doral reach out to us:
Reasons Why You Might Need a Surveyor
Sometimes, you’ll need a survey performed due to the need for planning permission, flood insurance, or some other lawful reason.
However, we also get a lot of requests from businesses and homeowners who just want an accurate drawing of their land or property.
Here are some of the most common reasons we receive calls from the residents of Doral:
In Doral, the typical home sells for around $465,000. So, it’s no surprise that most prospective homeowners apply for a loan with a bank or another lender.
Almost all lenders will require a survey of the intended property. A survey verifies that the property described in the paperwork matches up and helps them validate the value of the loan.
Banks and lenders do not want borrowers to be upside-down on their mortgages. An upside-down mortgage is when the borrower owes more on the loan than the value of the property.
One of the most important things to do before purchasing a property is to have a survey performed so you know precisely what you are buying.
After the ink dries, some new owners find out that a portion of their land, sometimes that contains a fence or a garage, actually belongs to their neighbors.
A survey will show you exactly where your property’s boundaries are and other details about the land and structures on it. It’s not a good idea to rely on what the seller is telling you, that won’t hold up in court.
Likewise, water surveys are essential for those who own docks and seawalls. Not knowing the mean high water could mean damage to your boats, sea vessels, and other property.
There are not a lot of properties in Doral that fall within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). However, we do still get the occasional call for floor risk surveys.
If you do require flood insurance or have a seawall or dock, failure to have the correct survey can invalidate your insurance. Leaving you at risk of costly repairs if the worst case were to happen.
If you’re unsure of whether you need a water survey, give us a call and we’ll be happy to take a look and advise you.
Making improvements to your land is a great way to increase its value. Adding a fence, water feature, or even some shrubbery can enhance your land as well as your neighbor’s. Before adding immovable structures, you will want to confirm your project happens on your property and your acting lawfully.
A survey can also save you a lot of time in the planning process. Having accurate measurements and topographic data can help you estimate material, time, and other aspects.
Similarly, you will want to know about easements on your land. An easement means a local authority has the right to use a portion of your land, such as a utility company. For example, you will not be able to add an inground pool if there are underground lines in that location.
Expanding the square footage of your home, building a garage or outhouse, adding an extension, all these additions require careful planning and permission from your local office.
Most importantly, a survey will uncover any potential issues that may arise when making renovations or additions.
We will send out a Doral Surveyor to draw up the plans you need to satisfy planning permissions. In addition, this will also give you peace of mind that you can safely and lawfully go ahead with your plans.
