What Your Land Surveyor Needs To Do?
A surveyor will certify the perimeter boundaries for the land parcel and identify the presence of any encroachments upon the subject property or from the subject property onto abutting parcels. The land surveyor is the most important professional when land is being sold or leased. He/she will advise their clients on the physical characteristics of the land parcel being sold.
Tips To Help You Complete Your Sale.
Always ask for a recent plan of the property and ensure that the plan carries the signature of a licensed Land Surveyor along with the recorded stamp by the Barbados Land and Surveys Department.
If the existing plan of the property is more than 20 years old, the prospective purchaser should always insist that a licensed registered professional surveyor who is also a member of the BLSA draw a new certified plan recorded by the Barbados, Lands and Surveyors Department.
