A boundary survey determines the legal borders of a commercial or residential property. As a prospective buyer, you will want to know what you are purchasing precisely. Fences are not accurate and may cross over property boundaries if the original owners put them up without completing a survey. 

The county or city government may require a location survey before granting you a zoning permit. This type of survey provides additional information about the location. While a boundary survey will give you a 100 percent accurate depiction of the property’s boundaries, a location survey provides details about improvements on the parcel. 

It is no secret that parts of South Florida are below sea level, which can make them susceptible to flooding. Flood insurance rates can depend on the area’s elevation, and mortgage lenders often require property owners to have coverage.

If your home or business is in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), flood insurance can save you thousands or more should the worst happen. A Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) or a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) information determines the premium rate. 

An Elevation Certificate will show the comparison between the base flood elevation data to the property’s elevation. The certificate is part of the National Flood Insurance Program and lists valuable information for the insurance provider.

You will likely need a land survey to get construction permits from the county and Kendall offices. It can also help you circumvent problems during construction that could be expensive or extend your timeline.

A boundary survey can ensure your new construction or renovations occur on your land. Encroachment is when someone builds a structure that goes over the boundary of their property. This could cause personal and legal problems between you and your neighbor.

A contractor may also need a construction layout survey that shows where the new or remodeled structure will go before starting work. You may need different types of surveys depending on the project, such as building an addition or adding a free-standing structure.  

Updating your property by adding features like swimming pools, patios, driveways, and more can require surveying services. In addition to knowing the boundaries of your property, you may need to know about any easements that lurk beneath the surface. 

You may need to apply for a title commitment from the Miami-Dade Clerk’s office. An improvement location survey can show that your project is compliant with Kendall regulations. 


Kendall is a unique area not easily defined. The area is a Miami suburb that is about 10 miles southwest of downtown and easily accessible by train. It is a relatively new area, getting its first post office in 1914 and opening its first school in 1929. 

The suburb’s biggest attraction is the 1.4-million square foot Dadeland Mall, home to more than 185 stores. Visitors can shop at a wide variety of name-brand retailers like Tesla, Tommy Bahama, and Microsoft. The dining terrace has some of the best restaurants, including Aoki Teppanyaki, Texas de Brazil, and Bobby’s Burger Place.

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy golfing at the Briar Bay Golf Course and the Killian Greens Golf Club or head to one of the many local parks. The Kendall Indian Hammocks Park, for instance, has many activities, such as softball, disc golf, a skate park, and trails through the 32-acre nature preserve. 

Residents and tourists who want to head indoors can go ice skating at the Kendall Ice Arena or play games at the Arcade Odyssey. The arcade has vintage games like Atari’s Pong and Contra. Kids of all ages can get lost in the bright lights of computer games, and the young-at-heart can enjoy a craft beer, tipsy tea, wine, and sake. 

Those who want to choo-choo choose a good time with trains can go to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. The attraction is home to historical memorabilia, including the presidential Pullman car Ferdinand Magellan that transported former presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, and Reagan.
