So to give you a better idea of the types of surveys we perform, here are some of the most common reasons our customer reach out to us:
Reasons to call out a surveyor
There are times when a survey is necessary by law. For example, for a construction company to start work, your local office for planning permission, a mortgage lender, insurance companies, etc.
In addition, we also get a lot of requests from businesses and homeowners who just want an accurate drawing of their land. Sometimes due to a neighborly dispute, or often just out of interest.
To give you a better idea of what we do here at Accurate Land Surveyors, here are some of the most common reasons we perform surveys in Marathon:
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 Marathon is around $530,000. 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 Marathon being made up of a set of islands, 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 Marathon 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.
