Precision Surveys, Inc. has performed numerous boundary surveys.
A boundary survey is what it says: a survey to define the boundaries of a tract of land.
A boundary survey involves researching the property being surveyed, as well as the surrounding properties. We look for deeds, easements, and survey plats. We make calculations based on the record and then we calculate data needed to go search for property corners. Our crew starts looking for corners based on these calculations. Once near the corner, if a corner is not visible, the crew uses a metal detector to search for buried corners. Found corners are measured. Once the initial search is done, the data is used to reconcile the boundary. Search locations are refined, and the crew goes back to the field to look for missing corners. If not found, a new monument is set at the refined corner location. Once the field work is complete, a boundary survey plat is prepared. The plat shows the findings of the survey. Sometimes there are conflicting boundaries. The survey will report any discrepancies found.
A boundary survey is required when creating a subdivision or a replat which is the modification of existing interior property lines within a larger parcel. A boundary survey is also required when performing an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey which is typically done for commercial properties.
We prepare cadastral surveys which are surveys of lands identified as part of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS). Surveys of the lands must follow the Bureau of Land Management Manual of Surveying Instructions. Mr. Larry Medrano is a Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS) which required successful completion of the required training. Bill Olver worked for BLM as a Cadastral Surveyor for over 30 years. That experience proves very valuable to our clients when performing these surveys.
We prepare cadastral surveys for many Native American Pueblos. Many Pueblos have private claims within their exterior boundaries, and we performed surveys of the boundaries to confirm the boundaries between the Pueblos and private parties.
