At South Texas Surveying, we understand that Boundary Surveys are much more than simple measurements of land. Our approach involves extensive research into public records, deeds, and previous surveys to determine accurate boundary lines. This process not only involves physical measurement but also a thorough investigation to uncover the legal description of your property - the official written account of a property's boundaries.

What is a Boundary Survey?

A Boundary Survey is a detailed process that determines the exact boundaries of a property. It involves physical measurements and research into historical documents and public records to establish the precise limits of the property, often including a legal description.

Ensuring Accurate Land Surveys 

By precisely understanding where your property's boundaries lie, we provide an accurate land survey, crucial in preventing potential future disputes and issues. Our focus on the legal description and historical data guarantees the reliability of our surveys, giving you peace of mind in your property investments.

Why Do I Need a Boundary Survey?

Generally, boundary surveys are required when purchasing, selling, or developing land.  We provide the standard surveys requested by title companies, and realtors/lenders. These re-establish the boundary and show all permanent improvements in relation to the property lines, known easements, and known setbacks.  Once all the necessary information is gathered and analyzed, our surveyors will present a drawing detailing the boundaries.

What are the different types of boundary surveys to choose from?

There are several different types of boundary surveys, such as cadastral surveys, ALTA/NSPS land title surveys, Category 1A Surveys and Land Title Surveys. The choice depends on the specific needs and requirements of the client and their project.
