Reasons to call out a surveyor
If you need any type of survey, we welcome you to give us a call and we are happy to discuss how we can best help.
To give you a better idea of what we do, here are some of the most common reasons residents and business owners of Key Largo reach out to us:
Key Largo is a highly desirable area and house prices are far above the average for Florida. The median house price in Key Largo is in the region of $600,000.
For this reason, almost every homebuyer will likely need a mortgage or some other form of finance. Most lenders will require a land survey as part of the appraisal process. This is to verify they’re lending the right amount, and their investment is secure.
A lot of homeowners come to use for a survey even if it’s not required by their lender. They just want to verify where their property boundaries are so they’re 100% of the land they’re buying.
Even if you do not need a survey to secure finance on your home or land, it’s still a good idea to have a survey performed when buying and selling property.
Land surveys are the only way to accurately know where the boundaries of your land start and end. Moreover, if you’re buying a home, it makes sense to check where the boundaries of your new property are.
For the cost of a survey, you can avoid potentially costly neighborly disputes. A survey shows you what land you – and your neighbors – are responsible for.
With Key Largo being part of the Florida Keys and made up of around 20% water, the residents living there are no strangers to the risk of flooding.
If your property is located in what’s known as a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), your lender will probably require a flood risk survey.
Even if it’s not a requirement, we still carry out many flood risk surveys for property owners that want to be aware of how much risk there is.
Making improvements to land 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 first giving your local office a call. You may require a survey as part of the planning permission process.
Even if you do not need one for planning permission, we still recommend having a land survey carried out.
Our technicians will be able to show you exactly where your land boundaries are so you don’t start making changes to land you don’t own. They’ll also check for any potential issues underground, such as easements and unknowns.
Creating more space by adding square footage, building an extension, or creating an addition is also a great way to add value to your property.
But just as with making landscape improvements, you have to make sure you’re able to make your proposed changes before starting work.
We can send out a Key Largo surveyor to perform a boundary survey. This will help speed up the planning permission if required. It’s also a good way to gain peace of mind that your proposed plans can go ahead.
Once construction starts, we can also return and carry out a Construction Layout Survey. These are drawings that aid the construction team and physical markers showing them where to start work.
