Before you start a development project on a particular piece of land, it behooves you to know exactly where the boundaries are on that land. The effects that inaccurate and lazy surveying can have on your project are devastating, especially where local ordinances and legal disputes are involved. That is why you should hire the services of a professional commercial surveying company like Land Surveying Escondido- our many years in the industry of land surveying has equipped us with the knowhow and skillsets necessary to get your project started correctly and to make sure that nothing unexpected sneaks up on you.
Acquiring a property survey map
Our commercial surveyor will give you a Property Survey Map after completing the commercial survey you have ordered. This is an extremely important piece of information as it puts onto paper all of the data the survey has uncovered, including the usage of pre-existing maps on top of the information the land surveyor has collected. This document will then be used during the entirety of the construction project, constantly referenced so that mistakes are not made on accident that could end up setting the project back weeks or even months.
Comprehending local ordinances
An important aspect of commercial surveying is having the surveyor explain all the ins and outs of the local laws and ordinances that lay out what exactly you can do with the property you are trying to develop. It is necessary to know the zoning laws and which type of zone your future development resides in. It is also important to understand what accountabilities you are going to incur in regards to bodies of water, easements, powerlines and other features that reside on or adjacent to your future development project.
Identifying property boundaries
It is vastly more important in commercial property development than in residential development that property boundaries are well established. Having properly marked boundary lines correctly established by a trained and experienced commercial surveyor will ultimately save you a lot of time, money and headaches when you end up avoiding painful legal disputes because of inaccurately marked boundaries. It also helps protect you against possible encroachments by adjacent landowners who are trying to flout the law at the expense of your property lines. Protect yourself against all of these things by hiring the services of a professional commercial surveyor today!
Understanding different types of land
It is absolutely essential that you understand what type of land you are planning to build your future commercial endeavor on, for different types of land will produce different sets of challenges depending on what it is you are trying to build. You could be accidentally placing your structure on wetlands that are not conducive to constructing basement levels inexpensively, or perhaps you could be looking into placing a structure on a floodplain unwittingly and end up incurring a repeated monthly cost of hundreds of extra dollars when you are thereby forced to purchase expensive flood insurance.
