Why do you need a Title Survey?
Title surveys are a survey of real property by a Registered Professional Land Surveyor. If you are selling, buying, or refinancing property or land and are obtaining a loan to do so, your lender may require you to obtain a survey from a Registered Professional Land Surveyor. The title company may require these surveys to close real estate transactions and insure the title to the property. These surveys are typically required for real estate transactions and include a boundary, improvements, and easements. This survey is for, buyers and sellers, to verify what is being bought or sold.
Why Do You Need a Stake and Draw Survey?
Want to know where your boundary corners are located? A stake and draw will allow you to see where your boundary corners are because they are marked on the ground with wood stakes showing the location. A drawing will follow with a visual representation of the completed survey signed and certified by a Registered Professional Land Surveyor for the State of Texas.
Fema Letter or Elevation Certificate
Elevation certificates are forms issued by FEMA for clients to use to obtain flood insurance, builders to use to obtain building permits, builder to use to satisfy city officials for interim slab and final elevations. Elevation certificates can also be used to remove or change flood insurance if the maps have changed over time and removed property from the flood zone or changed the type of flood zone. Elevations Certificates can also be used to remove improvements from the flood zone if they are located at an elevation that FEMA allows to be enough to avoid the flood zone in the area. Elevation Certificates require a recognized benchmark elevation to be located and used for measuring the elevations on the property. Elevations are measured on the ground and compared to the FEMA maps published online to complete the Certificate.
