What is a good, reputable, yet inexpensive surveying company who can do a survey on my lot in the neighborhood?

I'm open to an individual who works for a surveyor who might need a little work on the side after work.....

Thanks!

i used to survey for the NCDOT (Location & Surveys Unit in Matthews), do you need someone to find your property corners or does this need to be something official, with bearings, angles and distances?

do you have a copy of your deed/plat? is this new construction or an older home? if you have a copy of your deed/plat that would help a great deal, at that point it would be a matter of pacing off from a known corner to the unknown corner, taking into consideration the bearings/angles.

10 year old home. Don't have the plat but could probably get it.

Anyone else out there who could do a quick survey for me? I haven't gotten a response yet.

I am looking for two corners. Only need to know the property line on one side of the house from the street, back 40 feet where the woods begin. Once the woods begin I don't care.

Thanks!

Each side of your lot (close to the corners) should have metal pins / rods driven into the ground. These should be marked on your plat. The notation might be something like IRS or IRF (for Iron Rebar Set or Iron Rebar Found or something like that).

Make sure the plat is the one done after the house was built, as some of these are preliminary surveys done when the development was in the planning stages, not after the house was built.

One way to look for these is to measure from known points shown on the plat, e.g.- a corner of the house, the street, a sewer man hole cover, etc. Then dig a few inches down - these should not be buried all that deeply unless they were covered with a lot of fill dirt at some later point in time.

If you have or can borrow a metal detector, you can use that to look for the rods. I am not sure if a place like Sunbelt or United Rental or similar tool / equipment rental place would carry these, but it is worth a call.

You could also check with your neighbor to see if he or she has a plat done after their house was built showing similar known points / measurements, and then work off of each house towards the middle. If both measurements are pretty close you can feel reasonably confident that you are on or close to the property line. (think working towards the middle like the golden spike...)
