Alignment of Title Reports and Land Surveys - Survey Review

Alignment of Title Reports and Land Surveys - Survey Review

Review important features of the survey.

The value of a survey, if complete and accurate and obtained sufficiently in advance of the closing of the sale or financing transaction, is that it enhances the practical capacity of the parties to make an objective analysis of the risk of the existence of encroachments and of conflicts in boundary lines. In appropriate cases, the survey may also make it possible for the parties to obtain more specific or expanded title insurance coverage than would otherwise be possible. This white paper reviews how a survey can help to spot issue and addresses building setback lines and restrictions.
