Why do I need a survey?

The largest investment that most people make is their home or land, therefore, you should have a survey completed on your property or the property you are buying to insure that you are getting what you are buying.  Each landowner should also be aware of where their property boundaries are in order to protect their property from encroachments, trespassing or any adverse possession claims.  Too many times people opt out of the option for a survey and end up with boundary and legal problems that can cost far more than the cost of a survey upfront.
