This presentation consists of boundary survey issues in land surveying profession. A boundary survey is made to establish or to re-establish a boundary line on the ground, or to obtain data for constructing a map or plat showing a boundary line. The term boundary survey is usually restricted to surveys of boundary lines between political territories. It is important for retracement surveyor to follow the footsteps of original surveyor. A boundary survey is a process carried out to determine property lines and define true property corners of a parcel of land described in a deed. It also indicates the extent of any easements or encroachments and may show the limitations imposed on the property by state or local regulations. Boundary surveys are typically performed prior to buying, subdividing, improving, or building on land. Surveying parcel before these activities ensures avoidance of future disputes, the expense and frustration of defending a lawsuit, moving a building, or resolving a boundary problem. The various factors, which affect the cost of boundary survey will be discussed in the presentation. The boundary survey begins with a surveyor measuring, marking, and mapping the boundary lines of land ownership. The field work is preceded by the detailed research of the land historical records. After the field work, the results are compared with the research and the surveyor then reconciles all the information to arrive at a final conclusion about the boundaries. Finally, the surveyor will draft a plan, prepare a legal description and write a report. The land owners should know the various complications that can arise in the absence of reliable boundary surveys. How to deal with boundary dispute issues will be focused along with real life examples in the presentation.
