The benefits of retaining a professional and licensed land surveyor familiar with Waterfront Surveys are remarkable. Distinctions include identifying whether ownership extends to the water line, and may be as specific as the high water line or low water line.
The Waterfront Survey necessitates a review of all appropriate documentation, including the property deed. In addition to providing information regarding the land abutting the water for marker purposes, the Waterfront Survey may provide information about the water depths for at high or low tide to understand the suitability for mooring of boats and other pleasure-craft.
Ultimately, the surveyor will detail the proper margins of the waterway in a drawing. This includes notations of existing structures such as docks, moorings or piers.
