When would I need a survey?
You may need a survey for new home construction, building additions, garages and other major projects. The Building Inspections Office or the Planning Department, depending on the type of project, would make that decision. Home improvement contractors typically expect the homeowner to assume the responsibility for locating the lot lines. You may also need a survey to provide legal evidence if you are involved in a lot line dispute. A survey is the only document that can accurately show your property boundaries.
