A boundary survey determines the property lines of a parcel of land described in a deed. It will also indicate the extent of any easements or encroachments and may show the limitations imposed on the property by state or local regulations.
A boundary survey is strongly recommended before buying, subdividing*, improving or building on land. Surveying the parcel before these activities ensures that the expense and frustration of defending a lawsuit, moving a building, or resolving a boundary dispute can be avoided.
*Please note: If you are looking to divide or combine any property you must first pay your current year property taxes with the Chaves County Treasurer before any merge/division can be filed per NM Statute 7-38-44.1.
