What the County Surveyor’s Office does not provide
We do not survey private property. - However, we can assist in determining if a survey of the property has been recorded or if other record surveys and corners are available.
We do not settle property boundary disputes. - Unfortunately, from time-to-time people have disagreements regarding the locations of lines and corners. We are very willing to help gather the survey records that might assist in determining a peaceful solution to the issue.
We do not determine Floodplains or Wetlands. - There are several online resources that have maps that can assist with determining the likelihood if a Floodplain or Wetland might affect your property.
