A Boundary Survey is a procedure by which a Professional Land Surveyor establishes the corners of a parcel of land. It will also indicate the extent of any easements or encroachments. While the most important aspect of a boundary survey is its definition of the pertinent parcel's corners, the survey will comprehensively outline the extent of the property. A field survey is conducted to locate the evidence uncovering any boundary evidence, such as iron pipes or rods, and other evidence of the boundaries. The surveyor thoroughly examines the historical records relating to the land in question and often all lands surrounding. The results of the fieldwork are compared with the research and the surveyor then reconciles all the information to arrive at a final conclusion about the boundaries This survey will normally locate visible evidence of improvements within the surveyed site and visible physical evidence of possession or occupation either way from the exterior lines of the survey with dimensions unless requested not to be shown by the client. A complete Boundary Survey will produce a drawing entitled "Plat of Survey" Unless requested otherwise by the client.
