What does the Professional Land Surveyor need from you?

The Professional Land Surveyor needs your name, current address and phone number, the name of the current landowner, the Parcel Identification Number(PIN) or the property, and the Deed Book and Page number of the current deed. All of this is not required, but if you can provide it to the surveyor he / she will not have to search for it.  Any other information you have, such as deeds, wills or maps may be helpful as well.  It is not necessary for you to search for or get copies fo the neighbor’s deeds.  The Professional Land Surveyor is an expert at this research and is required to do so by the Standards of Practice.  A written authorization with a retainer may be required for certain surveys before the land surveyor will begin your survey.
