Will a Land Surveyor tell me what I own?

A land surveyor does not state ownership when preparing a property survey. deed-plan


A property survey is a professional Land Surveyor’s opinion of the physical location of the title boundary.

What is the difference?

A title boundary is the boundary of such real property as defined in the recorded deed.  An occupied boundary is the physical occupation of real property. Surveyors map the occupied boundaries compared to the title boundaries. Most times title boundaries and occupied boundaries are the same, or close. In some cases, title boundaries and occupied boundaries differ – an adverse possession claim is one instance.

Professional Land Surveyors can show owners’ potential claims, but actual ownership of the property can only be determined by a court.
