Boundary Surveys for Residences

An ALTA boundary survey will tell you the property boundaries, physical features, potential encumbrances, and any easements on your property. For example, if you’re looking to add a fence to your yard, you’ll need to know the property boundary lines and if any easements exist before adding the fence.

Contact us to request a boundary survey.

A Technology-First Approach

We use the latest field-to-finish technology in data collection and total station equipment.

In the field, FCE land surveyors use Leica Robotic and GPS-enabled surveying equipment, which allows for control at all functions from the surveying point.

Survey technicians, as well as our project managers, are networked using the most current CAD software, allowing them to precisely visualize and present the data collected from the surveyed area.

Many variables determine the cost of a land survey. The size of the property is a factor, and whether or not there are ANY of the corners marked at this point. The age of the development or area is another factor. Are there recorded plans of this property at the courthouse? Do you have the deed? Are there set backs or easements to consider? These are just a few of the variables that will be considered when pricing out the cost of providing surveying services.
