HOW MUCH WILL A SURVEY COST?

Nelson Surveying’s (NSI) cost estimate is based on both the time needed to complete the project and anticipated difficulty. Fees can only be estimated due to the inability to predict the actual amount of work needed to recover necessary evidence. The amount of time required to obtain field measurements and make boundary determinations depends on the availability and proximity of the discovered evidence. Cost estimates will be based on an hourly rate, experience from previous jobs, and a general knowledge of the area being surveyed. Actual costs may not be known until the project is completed.

WHAT CAN I DO TO REDUCE THE COST OF A SURVEY?

Documents regarding the ownership of your land can be helpful during the preparation of your survey. This can include a title insurance policy or commitment, previous surveys, or other relevant documents. If you are aware of property corner monuments near the survey, please let us know. If possible, make monuments or other markers more visible by placing cloth or flagging near them. All of these steps can save us time prior to and while conducting your survey.

WHAT QUALITIES SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A SURVEYING COMPANY?

When considering a surveyor, it is important to find one who is familiar with your local area. It is likely that the surveyor has done previous work there and this will provide information that may be useful during your survey. The surveyor should be able to provide you with a list of clients they have done similar work with. This is useful when checking references.

WHY IS THE SURVEY I JUST HAD PERFORMED DIFFERERNT FROM A PREVIOUS SURVEY?

There are two main reasons for discrepancies between surveys. First, measurement, by its natures, is subject to error. Two surveyors measuring the same line may obtain different values. Both of the values should be similar, buy will not reach the true theoretical value without repetition and statistical analysis. Second, measurements and decision are made from found evidence. Surveys performed at different times may have been subject to different evidence. More recent surveys may have benefited from markers or monuments that were not available during initial surveys, or previous markers may have been destroyed. As the available evidence changes, the findings of the surveyor will also change.
