Property Boundary Surveys in Colorado Springs And Beyond

A boundary survey is one of the most common land surveying and mapping services in both residential and commercial niches. This form of lot survey is typically used to establish the precise boundaries and corners of a parcel of land. In many instances, property owners may need to determine the boundaries of a property to ensure that improvements do not infringe on official property lines.

Whether it is for a general boundary survey or to survey property lines for a fence, boundary surveys must be carried out by experienced professionals to ensure property lines have been precisely defined. In many cases, our team at Apex Land Surveying and Mapping LLC will also identify improvements (structures), rights-of-way, easements, and other critical elements associated with the property. The results of your boundary survey depend on the type of service you choose.

This form of survey is used to identify property lines, but it can also help property developers subdivide current parcels of land into smaller allotments. In many cases, the results of your survey are sent to the local county and municipality for deposit or recordation to become a public record.
