A Land Survey is done for the purpose of accurately locating, describing, monumenting and recording the boundaries and corners of your land parcel, and/or mapping the topography, locations of improvements and planned improvements of your parcel

Surveys made before a real estate purchase, site design or construction will save time, money and worry later. Conflicting boundary and easement lines can be a result of legal descriptions recorded without the services of a professional Land Surveyor. When property or easement lines are created or changed, it is important to have accurate surveys and descriptions.

Whenever plans must show a property line, boundary, right-of-way, easement, or slopes and contours, California law requires the work be done by a registered land surveyor (or civil engineer registered before 1982). This is not always clearly stated in city building permit or design review checklists. Property lines drawn on plans by your architect or contractor are not suitable substitutes for an accurate survey.
