The next-door neighbor or the property next to the owner’s.

A situation where ownership can be claimed by use or occupation. As defined by law, certain rules apply which are best understood through consultation with a land surveyor or legal counsel.

When adjoiners reach agreement where boundary locations are in conflict. This can save thousands of dollars that would otherwise be wasted in resolving disputes.

Physical evidence that may represent intrusion or trespass by someone with no legal rights to use the property as described in a deed (use of an owner’s land without permission).

Land the property owner occupies that may be defined by fences, hedges or other improvements constructed near or on boundary lines, erected by either the owner or neighbors (adjoiners).

The perimeter of a parcel of land as defined in a deed or represented on a subdivision/partition plat. When the “Record Title Boundary” and the “Occupied Boundary” agree without evidence of unwritten“Encroachments,” a parcel is considered to be free of encumbrances. If the deed is in conflict with the “Occupied Boundary” or evidence exists of unwritten rights only the counts can settle the issue of ownership; e.g.; the public creates a path across property without securing permission from the owner.

The limits of land conveyed as described in a property owner’s deed.


To supply a title company and lender with survey and location data for issuing American Land Title Association or Extended Coverage Title Insurance. Such surveys typically show the relationships of existing improvements on a parcel of land relative to the boundaries as defined by the deed. (A.L.T.A. or American Land Title surveys may require a boundary survey).

To locate the property corners and boundary lines of a given parcel of land. This involves record and field research, measurements and computations to set boundary lines in accordance with state law. Easement lines and encroachments may also be located in this type of survey.

To provide construction personnel with directions (by way of staking or other notes) for erecting improvements shown on plans for development; e.g.; roads, buildings, and pipelines.

To establish precise horizontal and vertical positions of points on the ground for use in boundary determination, mapping from aerial photographs, construction staking and other related purposes.

A combination of boundary and topographic surveys for site plan preparation to be used for designing improvements or developments prior to construction, often required as part of a development permit application.

To subdivide or partition a tract of land into smaller parcels, showing property corners and survey data on a map in conformance with local and state law.

To locate topographic features of the land–natural and man made; for example; buildings, improvements, fences, elevations, trees, streams, and contours (e.g., lines of equal elevation). This type of survey may be required by a governmental agency or may be used by engineers and/or architects for design of site improvements or developments. It is also an excellent management tool for large tracts of forestland. Such a survey is not necessarily limited by property boundaries.
