Tip 25-2009: Surveys & Plats

Surveys & Plats:

We have recently experienced an epidemic of problems with physical surveys (especially in the City of Charlottesville). For example, a garage that actually encroaches on the adjacent property or a fence on the City right of way. Please try to provide the settlement attorney with a copy of any existing physical survey. Sometimes, even a plat of the boundary lines can be helpful. If no physical survey exists for the property, please explain to your client that it is extremely important to know where the house and all improvements are located on the property and if there are any encroachments or set back violations. Therefore, ordering a new physical survey may be necessary. Otherwise, the Purchaser is buying the Seller’s problem!!

Please contact me if you have any questions.
