A Land Title Survey
is a comprehensive investigation and evaluation of significant factors affecting and influencing boundary locations, ownership lines, rights of way, and easements within or immediately surrounding a certain lot, parcel, or quantity of real estate. This survey locates, determines, or re-establishes on the ground the perimeter, division lines, or boundaries and area of the certain lot, parcel, or quantity of real estate.
A Land Title Survey differs from a traditional or standard property survey in that the Land Title Survey is for title insuring purposes and therefore must include greater detail not normally gathered in the traditional or standard property survey. The practice of locating land boundaries requires the services of a Registered Professional Land Surveyor well-versed in the science and art of boundary law and the mechanics of measuring and computing values pertaining to such surveys.
