Have your land sur­veyed

The Telegram (St. John’s) - Home Buyers' Guide - - METRO REGION -

Own­ing land, par­tic­u­larly when it in­cludes your home is one of the most ex­cit­ing and im­por­tant in­vest­ments a fam­ily can make.

There are many things to con­sider when mak­ing this ma­jor in­vest­ment, es­pe­cially if it is your first real estate in­vest­ment. A real estate agent or land ap­praiser can ad­vise you about the value of the prop­erty, an ac­coun­tant or bank man­ager can ad­vise you about the fi­nanc­ing and a lawyer can con­firm the qual­ity of the ti­tle that you will be ob­tain­ing.

How­ever, one as­pect of land own­er­ship that is of­ten over­looked is the prepa­ra­tion of a land sur­vey to de­ter­mine the ex­act quan­tity and ex­act lo­ca­tion of the bound­aries of the land be­ing pur­chased.

Un­less the prop­erty has been sur­veyed it is wrong to as­sume that the de­scrip­tion used in the deed ac­cu­rately de­picts the cur­rent ex­tent, or the lim­it­ing fea­tures of the prop­erty bound­aries.

A New­found­land Land Sur­veyor us­ing ap­proved sur­vey prac­tices can pro­vide you with this in­for­ma­tion.
