What is a Land Survey? * A
land survey is the measurement along points, lines and physical
features on or near the surface of the earth to determine, describe
and record distances, elevations, directions, angles and other
features that precisely locate property and all structural
improvements to property.
What are the requirements to be
a Professional Land Surveyor? * Under New Jersey Law to be
licensed as a surveyor an individual must complete a four year
course of higher education in surveying, including mathematics and
science studies, in a state-approved curriculum; must have three
years practical experience; and must pass a 16 hour written
examination conducted by the State Board of Professional Engineers
and Land Surveyors.
Why are Land Surveys so important?
* Land surveys are the only scientifically precise assurance
for the identification and marking of property boundaries and
characteristics. Therefore land surveys are the best and most
appropriate means by which property buyers/owners can establish
full, clear legal claims to the homes and businesses they purchase,
maintain or sell.
How do I know which Surveyor I should
hire to perform my property survey? A land surveyor must be
licensed by the state and should be able to answer most questions
you may have regarding your property and its boundaries. Since
locating boundaries may vary from area to area it is important that
the surveyor be familiar with the area he/she is working in.
Pronesti surveying currently has three licensed land surveyors
performing and/or overseeing land surveys. We have many years of
experience in northern and central New Jersey.
