What is boundary surveying?
A boundary survey is a way to formally define where your property starts and ends. Without a proper survey, arguments may arise with neighbors, which could result in an expensive legal battle. Boundary surveys are standard before any new construction project, but can also be performed at any time, regardless of what’s going on with the property.
How much does a boundary survey cost?
The cost of boundary surveying in Texas depends on several different factors, including the ruggedness of the terrain, the size of the parcel and the dimensions of the land. The total cost of the survey might also be affected by the season. For example, a surveying company might have to charge more in the winter if there’s a ton of snow on the ground. Keep in mind that different companies will also charge more or less for surveying, depending on their base rate.
What is the boundary survey process?
A boundary surveyor begins by locating and marking each corner of the property. These markers are usually made of rebar or iron and are at least two feet high, so they’re easily visible. Next, the surveyor marks the ground with spray paint to further increase visibility. The surveyor then must draw the boundaries and analyze them to ensure everything is correct and there are no discrepancies. They will then deliver the results to the client, so they can continue with their development plans.
