If you are buying or selling property or refinancing, FEMA (ACT BW-12) now requires you to have a

boundary_retracement_LAG@2xA boundary survey establishes the corners and boundary lines of a specific parcel of land. A boundary survey can be used for a number of different purposes. LGS frequently performs boundary retracement surveys for homeowners who want to know where their property corners and borders are located. We also perform boundary surveys when a parcel of land is subdivided into smaller tracts.

A boundary retracement survey involves researching public and private records of the property in order to come to a proper description. We study the deeds of the property and its adjoining properties and evaluate any previous surveys performed for the specific parcel of land. We then take measurements at the property. All of the data we’ve collected is then plotted onto a survey map and provided to our client.

 It has been a pleasure to work with Steven Black. I had a problem with easements and boundaries and asked a colleague who she would recommend. She recommended Steven and he responded right away. He spent time talking to me about the best approach to the situation. He looked up the plot plan which is filed at the city. He then came to the site and verified that property lines were what was on file. He will act as my agent in an ongoing dispute. I feel very relieved that I have such a cooperative and experience professional on my side.
