Reasons to call out a surveyor
Land surveying has been helping Big Pine Key dictate property and land boundaries since 1837. Since the island is small, it’s crucial citizens stay up to date on where the boundaries of their properties lie.
Many residents of Big Island Key call for land surveyors to make sure they abide by the boundaries and expectations set by the municipality for the National Key Deer Refuge.
The refuge requires both the city and its citizens to follow specific building guidelines, all of which require accurate and precise land surveys.
Land surveying requires technical skills, legal knowledge, and specialized equipment to ensure accuracy; at Accurate Land Surveyors, we have over 30 years of experience and professional land surveyors who will help you with any project.
Accurate Land Surveyors established itself in 1983 and since then has performed over 100,000 surveys helping to protect the property rights of citizens. You know you will be in great hands with a team of highly qualified, professional surveyors, and managers who are trusted to complete your project in a timely and efficient manner.

Purchasing a home can be a great investment, and it’s typically the most expensive purchase someone makes in their lifetime.
The median house price in Big Pine Key is around $564,000. For this reason, almost everyone with an interest in buying a property will likely need to secure a mortgage or some other form of finance.
Financial institutes will often request a survey of the home and property before they agree to lend money against the property. This is to safeguard their financial interest and make sure the property is independently valued at the amount they’re lending for.
Even if you do not need to secure financing to purchase a home, you will almost certainly need a land survey.
Land surveys are the only way to accurately define the boundaries of your land. Moreover, if you’re buying a home, it makes sense to check where the boundaries of your new property are.
This will help you avoid, or resolve, any neighborly disputes. In addition, it clearly shows you the land you’re responsible for maintaining.
With Big Pine Key being surrounded by water, flood insurance isn’t anything new to a lot of the residents living there.
If your property is in what’s known as a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), your lender will probably require a flood risk survey.
We’ve carried out thousands of flood surveys across the whole of South Florida. So if you’re unsure whether or not you need one or what this means exactly, please give us a call.
If you have some land to work with, making improvements is a great way to add value to your property. Not to mention that it’s always nice to add a new swimming pool, fence, or water feature.
However, before making any changes to your land, we recommend giving our offices a call. There is a high likelihood that you will need a land survey to seek planning permission.
In addition, a survey will identify if there are any easements and unknowns that could potentially cause a problem.
Expanding the square footage of your home, adding an extension, building a garage or outhouse, all these additions require careful planning and permission from your local office.
Above all, a survey will uncover any potential issues that may arise when making renovations or additions.
We will send out a Big Pine Key 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.

About Big Pine key
Located roughly 100 miles south of Miami and 30 miles north of Key West, Big Pine Key is an island home to approximately 5,000 residents.
In 1873, Charles F. Smith and his crew first surveyed the island for the state of Florida, marking property boundaries and exploring its topography for the first time.
The Overseas Highway (US-1) from Key West to Big Pine was completed in 1927, allowing easier access to the community.
Big Pine Key is unique for the Blue Hole, an abandoned rock quarry, and the Keys only fresh water hole of any substantial size remaining within the region.
Also unique to the island is the National Key Deer Refuge, home to most of the deer population throughout the keys. Big Island Key has dedicated over 9,000 acres to the refuge.
Apart from the county of Monroe, Big Island Key is a total of 10 square miles, 9.8 square miles of land, 0.2 square miles of water.
Big Pine Key is a tourist attraction offering boating, fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling, and it provides easy access to the surrounding key islands.
Since the island is home to such a large National Key Deer Refuge, having surveys conducted is essential to ensure that boundaries are respected.
