A Registered Professional Land Surveyor is a person who has qualified by education and experience, and who has passed an examination for Registration required by the laws of the State in which he or she is practicing.
Today, many informed land owners, home owners, and soon to be landowners find that their investment in real estate is best defined, described, mapped, located and developed with the assistance of a Professional Land Surveyor. We here at Action Surveying have been providing quality surveying services for over thirty years.

Why Do I Need a New Survey if I Already Have an Old One?
A new survey is a small fee for one of the biggest investments a buyer will ever make. Please be informed that the surveyor is only liable for a property survey for 10 years. Surveys are copyrighted material and may not be reproduced except for the initial transaction. The surveyor no longer warrants a survey that is transferred and/or older than 10 years.
Easements, restrictions, and flood zones are subject to change. When a seller signs an affidavit (that no improvements have been made since the last survey) the seller may be responsible for any problems that may arise.
Buyers may have to take any issues up with the seller, if the seller can still be located. This could mean possible lawsuits. Be informed and know the liabilities of what you and your buyer/seller are taking upon yourselves when using an existing survey.
Topography Surveys: show the elevation of specific points on the property. The points to be surveyed or the spacing grid is agreed on with the client before the works starts. Existing utility information, location, size, etc. can be included at the clients’ request.
Residential Title Surveys: meet title company requirements to close real estate transactions.
