When it comes to becoming a landowner, one of the biggest issues is property lines. Where does your property stop and end, where can you place fencing, everything seems like a complicated issue. Luckily, we are here to help you debunk some of the myths that make owning property a daunting task. Here are some of the more common myths when it comes to land surveying:
Myth #1: Land surveys aren’t necessary is you can find the property stakes. Because using old property lines based on property stakes of a previous survey won’t hold up in court, it may be a good idea to get the survey done to ensure what you think is yours actually is.
Myth #2: Neighbors don’t try to encroach on your property. It’s an age-old story that has been featured on movies and television shows since the beginning of time. It’s all true. Make sure you know everyone is on their own property before there’s a war in the neighborhood.
Myth #3: I don’t need a survey for a fence. Isn’t it just better to be safe than sorry? Fences are expensive. Even old fences can’t definitely claim to be on your property line.
Myth #4: Old surveys will work just fine. There have been tremendous developments in land surveying equipment that relying solely on older surveys may not be the wisest decision. And if the property is old enough, a land survey may have never been done.
Myth #5: Land surveys are expensive. Having to deal with a court case and having to redo anything that doesn’t fall within your property line is going to be a pricey endeavor, so it depends on where you want to make the investment.
