Why You Need a Survey

Surveys are prepared by professional, licensed surveyors pursuant to industry standards. 

A survey conducted for the seller at the time the seller purchased the property is not a protection for a subsequent purchaser. A purchaser must have his or her own survey conducted.

If you want a survey prepared, please make arrangements for the survey with us so the survey can be completed and reviewed before your closing. This allows time to address any potential problems.

A survey is a map of your property, showing precisely where your house lies within the property boundaries, as well as easements, other encumbrances, setback lines, and building lines. A survey will reveal whether the property is in violation of any county requirements or PUD restrictions and whether there are any encroachments.
