Boundary / Property

Property is valuable! Our experienced team prepares boundary surveys on properties of all area sizes, in a timely manner, with quality results.

What is a survey?

Surveys are used to determine ownership and property lines. A survey discloses what portion of the property is being purchased and the scope of improvements on that property. An accurate and updated survey ensures your protection in your real estate transaction.

Boundary/Property Survey Service Area.

For individual property owners/boundary surveys, please reference the green shaded area in this map for our service area. If your property is located outside of our service area, there should be professional surveyors available closer to your property that can assist you.

Did you know?

Many people assume telephone poles, fences, or sidewalks are property corners when they most likely are not. Professional land surveyors are trained and licensed to make property line determinations. CGA surveyors can provide you with a map and a legal description of your property.
Steps to do a Land Survey

Drawing services offered by CGA include:

  • Record Drawings
  • Legal Descriptions
  • Preliminary Designs
  • Plats and Reviews
  • Subdivision Plats
  • Maps

Subdivision Platting

Subdivision Platting is undertaken when an existing parcel is subdivided into smaller lots or multiple tracts and conversely when multiple parcels are combined into a larger tract. The process varies considerably with jurisdiction but often involves a multiple step process of reviews, hearings, and approvals by multiple governmental entities.

Site Plans

A Site Plan is a pre-construction survey that shows the location of the proposed building, parking or driveway, and other improvements. It is composed of a Boundary Survey, Topographical Survey, and a Grading and Utility Plan according to county requirements.
