Why are you surveying on my neighbor’s property also?

When a survey is performed on a property, there can be many reasons why your surveyor needs to locate things that are not on your property.  North Carolina law requires surveyors to tie surveys to certain reference points.  Also, you property corners are verified by locating your neighbor’s corners and comparing this information to recorded deeds and maps.  In cases where your property corners are missing or disturbed, then it is necessary to locate adjoining property corners to determine the proper location of your corners.
