Boundary Line Locaton

Boundary Line Location 

Also known as a 'Re-Tracement Survey', this is our most requested service. A survey for marking, locating and/or re-establishing the boundaries and corners of an existing tract of land.

 

The correct location and monumentation (staking) of property lines is the foundation and primary concerns prior to buying and selling property, building fences, installing utility lines, timbering, or beginning building construction. Too many times the exact location of property lines are ignored or "assumed to be known" until problems develop, such as property line disputes. 

Boundary Survey

A survey for locating and re-establishing the boundaries and corners of an existing tract of land. This type of survey usually includes the location of all the pertinent improvements upon the land with the findings shown on a survey plan and given to the land owner(s).

 

The correct location and monumentation of property lines is the foundation and primary concerns prior to buying and selling property. This would sometimes be used to prepare or correct a legal description in a deed and may be recorded at the Office of the Recorder of Deeds at the county with a deed.

Topographic Survey

A Topographic Survey measures the horizontal and vertical positions, determines, and shows elevations and contours to describe the relief of the land, as well as the natural and man-made features, such as mountains, valleys, streams, woodlands, trees, fences, buildings, roads, ect. for topographic maps of a part of the Earth's surface. 

This type of plan is typically completed for engineers for creating Land Development Plans, contractors for developing land, building fences, installing utility lines, timbering, or beginning building construction or earthmoving activities

Land Subdivision Survey 

A survey for the division of a tract of land into smaller parcels or the creation of any new property lines, as well as the marking of the new lot corners.

 

Every division of land or the creation of any new property line requires a Land Subdivision Plan to be prepared by a Professional Land Surveyor and approved by the municipality in accordance with the applicable Land Subdivision and Zoning Ordinances with input from various other review agencies. This process may appear overwhelming but it is our function at Beyond All Boundaries, Inc. to handle and manage all aspects of Land Subdivision from beginning to end to the financial benefit of our clients.

 

Pennsylvania law requires these plans to be recorded with the county.
