Suggestions on Hiring a Surveyor

  • Understand the type of survey you need and what you are paying for
  • Talk to the surveyor in depth about the type of survey you need and what it will be used for. There is a lot of discretion on the options and there may be an opportunity to save money
  • Understand if you are getting a new survey or a recycled survey from another surveyor
  • Understand the reputation of the surveyor, check references
  • Question if the surveyor has experience in the type of survey you need
  • Ask to be informed of the date of field survey and request a final date of delivery
  • Require proof of insurance for professional liability. The law does not require insurance for surveyors
