What is a Subdivision Survey?

A subdivision survey is dividing a parcel of land into smaller parcels. This could be as simple as splitting a parcel in half, or as complex as dividing it into hundreds of parcels, all of different sizes. A surveyor would complete this by researching existing documents and performing a boundary survey of the land to determine how to split property while complying with zoning requirements, existing monuments, and more.

Why Would I Need a Subdivision Survey?

There are many developmental reasons for wanting a subdivision survey. One of the most common scenarios we encounter is that a landowner wants to sell a portion of their land, without selling the entire property. To get this sale approved, they would need to split the property using a state-licensed subdivision survey company.
