Property owners need to know where there property lines are when erecting fences,building homes,out buildings,planting trees are any improvements,you don't won't to spend hard earned money to find out later,that you have built across the property line,or that the  neighbor has built over on you. 


Boundary surveys are usually associated with larger tracts of land,when planning to subdivide large tracts,such as a farm,or unimproved property,cutting timber,etc.The surveyors job is to follow in the footsteps of the orginal surveyor and locate the orginal monuments that are called for in the deed.Woodland boundaries need to be blazed and painted,so the property owner can maintain their property lines, long after the surveyor has gone,with just a few cans of paint.


Topo maps as we surveyors call it,are maps created by collecting elevation data of the property which show the contour lines,which are needed for planning construction, or if the property is a lake lot or river front property,the property line follows a elevation contour


Setting stakes with offset  distances to proposed structures,with a cut or fill grade for removing or adding clay,dirt,stone are concrete,also setting points on the foundation corners to avoid having to set batter boards


Each community of Tennessee has been mapped for flood data,by the federal goverment,which classifies property in different flood areas,Some of this data is outdated or just incorrect,The incorrct data forces property owners who are not in a flood zone to buy flood insurance.The flood certificate is a federal form,that is filled out with survey data of elevations of the finished floor of the home,and elevations of house corners,and any other required information,that has been collected by the land surveyor.This form is then submitted to FEMA for review,and in a lot of cases,the property in question is removed from the flood area.Thats good news for the property owner,flood insurance is expensive.


Long gone are the days of a surveyor drawing a map with a pencil and scale,today most surveyors generate maps with computer programs .These maps then can be plotted on paper,saved to a disk,or emailed to a client.These drawings can be edited later where changes need to be made,without having to redraw the complete survey map.Saving time and money

Over lapping boundary lines,Boundary lines do not overlap on the ground,just on paper such as deeds.Sometimes different property owners can have a deed for the same property.There lies the problem,who has the better title.This can only be resolved by a Land Surveyor,after searcing the record titles back in time to see who acquired what first.Then marking those corners and lines on the ground.But sometimes surveyors can have different opinions as to where the boundary is actually located. In these cases that is resolved in a court of law.If you have a boundary problem,contact Easter Surveying Co. with our experience we can  resolve these issues without having to hire lawyers and go through the courts.
