BOUNDARY SURVEYS

Whether you are buying, selling, inheriting, or developing, it is important to clearly identify your boundaries and property limits. Cutrer Land Surveying will perform boundary surveys on any size parcel to any client's specifications while upholding the Technical Standards of Practice for the State of Mississippi and respecting all adjoining land owners. Specific surveying specialties provided are:

 

  • Land Boundary Surveys

  • Mortgage Loan Surveys

  • Land Title Surveys

  • Subdivision Surveys

  • Easement Surveys

  • Exhibit Maps

 

Each boundary survey performed by Cutrer Land Surveying will be completed with a survey plat/map showing all property dimensions in the form of bearings and distances, all corner markers, set or found, all encroachments, if any and a legal description of the subject property. Any plat/map can be overlaid onto aerial photography for a " bird's eye view" in relation to property boundaries. All boundary corner markers will be clearly identified and marked for future recovery and all boundary lines can be marked/painted to client's specifications, if necessary.

 

 

 

 

When performing Boundary Surveys, it is the intent of Cutrer Land Surveying to retrace the footsteps of the Original Surveyor. In order for this to happen, a step-by-step method is applied to each and every boundary survey.

 

1.  A records search is performed to locate parcel deeds, including all adjoiners.

2. A basemap is created with aerial photography and Public Land Survey System (PLSS)            data provided through the Mississippi Automated Resource Information System (MARIS)      to plot each deed to verify closure and check for any overlaps, gaps, and specific                    monumentation language.

3. An extensive search is performed in the field for all boundary corner markers, tie                 corners, right-of-ways/easements, encroachments, etc.

4. All information collected is then evaluated and compared with record descriptions in           order to determine which monuments are accepted or not.

5. Upon evaluating all evidence, missing or unaccepted corners are then re-set in relation       to any rotation needed in order to retrace the footsteps of the original surveyor.
