When building over land, you will want first to find a surveyor who is knows about surveying in El Paso property. This is important because a knowledgeable surveyor can give you pertinent information about the property. Here at Land-Mark Professional Surveying, we want you to avoid as many problems as possible. Here are a few things a survey can tell you about a property before you begin to dig.
Surveying El Paso for Boundary Lines
When inspecting a property for purchase or to add onto, you will want to know where the borders reach. Often, it will not be enough to take physical measurements of the building. That is because legally, the property could either extend further beyond the border or closer within it. If it extends further, you can make better use of the space you have. If the border is smaller than anticipated, you may be encroaching on nearby properties. This can become a hassle if neighbors ever survey their own property and find out you withheld information.
Surveying for Zoning Classification
If you are planning on building or buying a building for industrial purposes, a survey can help. Because every city has classified different zones for different purposes, you may not be able to build. For example, if you want to maintain a small farm in your backyard there will be laws prohibiting you. Specifically, a farm belongs in agricultural zones as opposed to a residential zone where your home is.
Another advantage to surveying El Paso properties is finding out what equipment a utility company has on your property. If a water company has already built a pipeline underneath the property, they could prevent you from building. While it may not be a problem at first, they can potentially use your property for any repairs. Similarly, if there are electric lines overhead, an electric company can prevent you from growing trees there.
