Is there a map of where this is? I know that's a bit vague so let's try this: which part of SJP is involved?

It's out on Rt 211 about a mile east of Midway... just a few hundred yards east of the new Holiday Inn Express ..... but it does not touch nor is it a part of or affiliated with St James Plantation in any way.

GBSEF, I second Stonys recommendation of McHenry in Oak Island. They were excellent in our survey. One thing to remember is that SJP POA requires that trees over a certain trunk size (can't remember the size sorry) need to be included in the survey. Without the trees included it will cost around $600, with the trees included it will cost about double that. Our lot is an odd shape with some nature preserve on the lot so our cost was at the max $1200. If you do only the land aspect you will have to repeat the cost for land and trees. McHenry was upfront with the cost, and did a great job.

I also vote for McHenry ... assuming you have bought the land, I'm surprised it did not come with a detailed survey. Anyway, a survey has a number of purposes including boundaries, location of services and the all important elevations of the lot will be needed to establish flood zone, have a bearing on foundation location and height, and thus insurance.

We just had a full survey done on our lot in Lockwood Folly. Bobby Long did it for $700.

Thank you for this information Chevy... just the information we're looking for. The lot we are looking at is quite large but there are wetlands involved and we need some peace of mind while we're in due diligence as to how much space we would have for a backyard, considering setbacks...etc.
Much Appreciated!

Thanks for your vote ditchoc.... We were given a survey which was done over 13 months ago, while it did show elevations, heights and a few other items, it just didn't show us certain aspects in measurements in which we are looking for.

Ah .. then perhaps your existing survey could simply be added to, which may be less expensive. There are other variables that go into house plan selection and placement like set backs. These can vary from neighborhood to neighborhood even within SJP. There are also some specific things like corner lots and which way the house needs to face as well as dealing with water (ponds) and storm run off. I know one lot that had to have right of ways/set back changed because of a large underground pipe that ran along the property line, connecting two ponds. If you have not been in SJP during an extended heavy rain you may be surprised with standing water. It tends to drain pretty quickly but sometimes it could use some help.

Good luck

I've heard many areas of SJ are prone to flooding in heavy rain. Is this true and if so what should one look for when touring the community? Are there certain areas that drain better?
