How Much does a Survey Cost?
The cost of a survey depends on several things including the type of survey needed, the time required to perform the survey and preparation of necessary plans and descriptions.
Some variables which affect the cost of a land survey are:
- Terrain and Accessibility: A level, open field is much easier to survey than a wooded, hilly tract of land.
- Time of Year: Dense vegetation in summer often restricts the line of sight. Snow in winter may conceal field evidence.
- Size and Shape: An irregularly shaped tract of land has more corners and a longer perimeter than a square containing the same area.
- Field Evidence: The presence of iron monuments, corner stones, etc., in the survey area aid the surveyor, their absence makes the survey more difficult.
- Deeds: At times the legal description of the property to be surveyed may be vague, incomplete, contradictory, and/or mathematically inaccurate. It may also be necessary to resolve an unrecorded deed, agreement or easement.
