Why Do I need a survey?
A mortgage survey is a survey that is used by banks and title companies to guarantee that a residential property is clear of any encroachments. This type of survey will show the property boundaries and easements, along with the improvements (i.e. house, garage, driveway, sidewalk, in-ground pool, etc.) that are on a property.
How to Order a Survey?
Choose an experienced, reputable, dependable local surveyor. Keep in mind that such a surveyor may not be the least expensive one. Get recommendations from real estate attorneys, mortgage brokers, and mortgage companies.
