A survey is an instrument that provides a detailed picture of a specific property on a specific date. Further the document will indicate the location of easements, encroachments and improvements, among other important details.
While a purchaser can save money by using an existing survey, the purchaser will be unable to seek recourse against the surveyor as no contractual relationship exists between the two parties. Therefore, it is generally advisable to order a new survey prior to purchasing real estate.
