What’s the Purpose of Getting a Land Survey?

A land survey provides a precise graphical representation of a property, depicting both its physical boundaries and the structures built upon it. This aids in:

  • Resolving property disputes and clarifying boundaries.
  • Providing crucial information for property transactions or mortgages.
  • Assisting in planning and permitting processes for construction or renovation.
  • Ensuring compliance with local zoning, environmental, and building codes.

How Much Does a Land Survey Cost in Delaware?

The cost of a land survey in Delaware can vary based on several factors including the size of the property, its location, the type of survey needed, and the complexity of the project. On average, a residential boundary survey might range from $300 to $1,000, but it’s essential to consult with a local land surveyor for a precise quote tailored to your specific needs.

Who Typically Pays for a New Survey?

In real estate transactions, it’s common for the buyer to pay for the land survey as they often require it for their lender or for their own peace of mind. However, the responsibility can be negotiated between the buyer and seller. In other circumstances, such as construction or land development, the property owner or developer typically covers the survey cost.

What’s the Value in Getting a Land Survey?

The value of a land survey lies in its ability to:

  • Provide clarity and certainty on property boundaries, reducing the risk of future disputes.
  • Facilitate informed decision-making in property investments or developments.
  • Ensure compliance with various regulations, which can save money and time in the long run.
  • Enhance the potential resale value by providing clear documentation of the land’s features and boundaries.

How Long Does a Land Survey Typically Take?

The duration of a land survey depends on the type of survey, the size and complexity of the property, and current environmental conditions. While some surveys might be completed in a day, larger or more complex surveys can take several days or even weeks.

Is a Land Survey Permanent?

Over time, land can shift, and man-made changes can alter property features. While a land survey provides a snapshot of a property at a specific time, it’s advisable to get a new survey if significant time has passed or if there have been major changes to the land or its use.

Can I Rely on an Old Survey of My Property?

While old surveys can provide valuable historical information, relying solely on them can be risky. Landscape changes, shifts in land, or updated regulations might render old surveys inaccurate or non-compliant. For any critical decisions or transactions, it’s advisable to obtain a new, updated survey.
