A property survey is a crucial thing for the people who are either going to buy a property or thinking about selling it. In both of these cases, a property survey is necessary because it provides specific details about the property for all parties involved. However, in case you are talking about Limited Property, things get even more vital since they are to some extent quite different from a complete property survey.
Although a Limited Property Survey includes almost the same standards and procedures, they still have a few distinctive features and types such as Zoning Location Survey, Existing Building Location Survey, Improvement Location Survey, Easement Map and many more.
What is included in a Limited Property survey?
As already mentioned, a Limited Property Survey is a detailed inspection report of a property to assess its market value, boundary and/or other relevant statistics. This survey requires a sufficient amount of study, inspection, field measurement and an overall evaluation of factors affecting boundaries, real property interests and other relevant issues about the same property. With this report, a surveyor can provide property/boundary data that can be used in a number of occasions, for example, zoning compliance of a structure, easements and so on.
What are the types of Limited Property Survey?
There are different types of Limited Property Surveys such as Existing Building Location Survey, Improvement Location Survey, Zoning Location Survey, and Easement Mapping. An Existing Building Location Survey only includes records and notes on the position of all buildings on the property with respect to boundaries, deed restrictions and easement lines and pertinent municipal setback requirements. On the other hand, a Zoning Location Survey is a type of survey that notes the position of existing or proposed improvements with respect to applicable municipal setback requirements. This specific Limited Property Survey is actually conducted to find out any compliance issues with standard property/zoning requirements.
There is another type of Limited Property Survey, the Improvement Location Survey, which depicts the position between particular existing and proposed improvements with respect to the applicable municipal or statutory requirements horizontally and/or vertically, if required. Another specific Limited Property Survey is the Boundary Stake-Out which monuments or marks the positions of all property corners.
