A Boundary Survey, sometimes called a "Property Survey", or "Cadastral Survey" is made to document the limits, extents and area of a parcel of land. Most often the survey is a "Retracement" of an earlier survey to recover property corner markers, refresh boundary line marks, locate improvements, easements or encroachments, and confirm the area prior to the sale of a property. An "Original Survey" may be needed to prepare a deed for a property with no earlier survey, to create a new parcel for new construction, or to divide an estate. The Surveyor may be employed to mark the property lines prior to the harvest of timber, erection of fencing, or for other construction projects. The survey drawing or "Plat" is a legal document, frequently used as the basis for a written deed description and may be recorded into the public record. Sometimes a survey is made to document a property line in dispute. In these cases the Surveyor may be called to give testimony as an expert witness. Daniel Baker has extensive experience in all areas of boundary surveying.
