What Constitutes Site Survey And Land Title Survey Missouri?

By Marie Scott

If your new garden space design is to be a natural extension of your home, both from an ergonomically and stylistically, then it is essential to make accurate measurements of the area in the garden you wish to design. If however, your plot is bigger than a third of an acre and/or it is on a significant slope, then it is prudent to seek professional help. This article takes you through the concept of land title survey Missouri and helps in finding an accurate idea of where the structure is or should be in relation to all the other parts of the garden.

Land surveying denotes the process of delving into the specifics of studying the field of land and garnering information to inspect its precise location. The entire task encompasses the intricate job of recovering, marking, measuring and mapping. It serves to demarcate the site's definitions and boundaries.

Note the location of all utility points including drains and manholes, overhead cables and electricity poles, rainwater pipes and surface water drains and finally any satellite dish. Find the location of all windows, doors and constituent parts of the house which may determine the position of features - both planting and hard landscape - in your new garden. Determine the location of all existing outbuildings, green houses and sheds.

Survey also opens up to other associated services such as any construction layout, mapping, finding out the measurement of elevation, sorting out the data related to mapping, length, volume, angle, area. All these fields utilize the detailed data related to its appraisal and analysis. This is an elaborate task that takes into account a good observation of the details, the study of the land, and learning about the legal instruments in order to give result to the perspective of designing, planning and finally establishing boundaries for the property.

These days GPS can also be used, but the results are not as accurate as those produced using the more traditional methods of obtaining readings. The surveyor will generally make several measurements to give an average, then, using these results will be able to establish a true position for the boundary. On completion of the measurements, the land surveyor will then look at the placement of the stakes that were used for measuring points to see whether there are any differences between this survey and the previous records.

Off set measurements are used to measure curves on driveways and borders. Establish a base line reasonably close to the curve you wish to measure. Establish the location of the beginning and end, as determined by triangulated measurements. Then divide the base line into 1 meter lengths. Now take measurements at right angles to the base line to the curve.

Measurements of the building should be accurate to 50mm horizontally and 10mm vertically. Sometimes it is difficult to achieve this level of accuracy in measuring a garden due to obstructions. If you are measuring on a slope then be careful to hold the tape horizontal or your measurements will be inaccurate.

Whether you consider the plot or site surveying, the process follows the in-depth introspection for further designing and planning. Both processes are profoundly important in a variety of ways. They are especially important during property evaluation, real estate sales or purchase, appraisals and planning for constructions. Thus, be sure to check out on the above aspects before purchasing or appraising any real property.
