Boundary Surveys:

What do we do?

We will survey your property per your deed. There are a variety of issues which may dictate that your legal boundary is different from the deed boundary we have staked. Some of these issues are discussed below. Only an agreement between the land owners or the court system can confirm a legal boundary. A Professional Land Surveyor can only provide you with an expert opinion of where boundary is located.

It is your responsibility to provide us with your correct legal description. If we suspect problems with the legal description we have been provided, we will attempt to research these problems but we are not always aware of dedications, vacations, boundary line adjustments, conflicts with your neighbors or other issues which may affect your property.

Normally on a boundary survey, we will set one of two different markers at your property corner. If the corner falls in dirt or asphalt, we will set a 5/8" iron rebar with a yellow cap marked 'STRATTON 10677' at the actual corner and a stake next to it to make it easy to find. If the corner falls in concrete, we will drill a small hole in the concrete, fill the hole with lead, and then place a tack and brass washer labeled 'LS 10677' at the property corner. We will paint a white circle around the corner to make it easy to find. Occasionally, a corner will fall in a fence post, tree or other obstacle where it is impractical to set a corner. In these situations, we may set a variety of markers depending on the situation.

10677 is Rob's Idaho Land Surveyor's number. This number will be different for different states and different surveyors.

Please note that we may set property corners at angle points and at the ends of curves. Sometimes these corners fall close to main corners of the property. Please review the survey while the markers are fresh to understand their relationship to the boundary. If you are unsure which markers are which, please contact us to help you understand them.

If a recorded survey is not required, your invoice will be your receipt that your property was surveyed by our company under the supervision of a licensed Land Surveyor. You should store a copy of this statement with your other records concerning your property.

Encroachments and discrepancies:

As mentioned previously, we stake the property per your deed. There are a variety of issues which may effect what you legally own. Some of the more common problems are:
