Reasons to Hire a Professional Land Surveying Firm in California

Hiring a professional land surveying firm is not only necessary when you must provide a legal description of your property or when you need to settle a land dispute. There are many other reasons to hire a professional land surveyor. In some cases, you will need these services before you start constructing a new road, building, or house. Professional land surveyors have the most advanced equipment for conducting a reliable and accurate land survey. Here are just some of the many reasons for hiring a professional land surveying firm in California:

  • They are experts in land surveying and mapping. Land surveying identifies the three-dimensional or terrestrial positions, and the angles and distances between them. The points are typically marked on the earth's surface, and these are crucial for establishing boundaries and land maps. A professional land surveying firm in California has the latest technological equipment, a knowledgeable staff, and the experience to perform anything from the simplest to the most complicated land and topographic surveys and mapping.

    Professional land surveyors are knowledgeable when it comes to physics, mathematics, engineering, and geometry, all of which are essential when it comes to achieving the most accurate and reliable land surveys and maps. As a result, a land surveying firm is capable of providing full service mapping and land surveying, environmental surveys, GPS, ALTA/ACSM, and 3D laser scanning services.

  • They are licensed to perform land surveys. Professionals are licensed to provide land surveying services in California. The licensing lets them conduct services in other states within the western US, too, including Colorado.

  • They can define your boundaries the legal way. A residential land survey is among the services offered by a professional land surveying firm. This type of survey involves the accurate and exact measurements of a definite piece of land's boundaries. Also known as a 'boundary survey', residential land surveys are often used before building on a property or in cases of disputed lands. Titles and lending companies may require this land survey to depict the erected structures on the land, too.

  • They can provide litigation support. If you are facing legal action, hiring a professional land surveying firm will help you with your case. An expert land surveyor can be a reliable and credible witness and help you with accident scene documentation, omissions and project errors, dispute meditation, and any encroachment issues related to easements or boundaries.
