Do I need a survey?....
You need a survey because sometimes it can increase the
value of your property.
If you are refinancing your property or applying
for a loan, your financial institution will usually require a loan survey with a
map, surveyor's title report, and a flood certificate.
You need a survey to make sure that your house or any
permanent structure such as a fence, pump house, etc. is not encroaching onto

land to any heirs at your time of death. This can prevent family conflicts or
controversy with neighbors.
