New Bern Surveyors

A survey is an important part of any Real Estate Transaction. The Tyson Group recommends you hire a licensed surveyor to do a survey before you purchase any property.

Do you need to have a survey when you purchase Real Estate in North Carolina? Yes. Will you be required to have one? Usually not. Regardless of whether you are required to have a survey or not, you should get one. I have seen a few surprises, unpleasant ones, show up on surveys that would have cost the buyer a lot of money if they had ot had a survey done before closing. And remember, title insurance will not cover a claim if a survey would have identified the problem before closing.

A survey by a registered land surveyor will show the boundries of your property, the location of your house on the property and any out buildings on the property. It should show fences, decks, and docks, driveways, and utility poles. In addition it should show right of ways and set back boundaries. If there are any encroachments on the property they should be shown on the survey. If your property is in a flood zone it should be noted on the property.

If you are in the 100 year flood zone and you have a mortgage, you will be required to carry flood insurance. Before you can buy flood insurance you will have to have a registered land surveyor do a flood elevation certificate on your property. A flood elevation certificate will normally cost around $400 and will show the finish floor elevation, the garage elevation, the elevation of the basement or crawl space. In addition it will note if the foundation has the required flood vents. For more information on flood insurance Click Here
