The most important feature of a survey plan is that it displays the legal boundaries of the property, a factor that often gets little regard until a boundary issue arises. When property boundaries matter, they really matter!
A survey plan enables the reader to ascertain:
- the size and shape of the property
- the location of rights of ways and easements
- dimensions and distances to the boundary of houses, sheds, fences, utilities and any features of importance to the landowner
- the location and description of physical monuments or markers that have been placed to mark the limits of the land
