Do I Have The Right To Block Or Put Up A Gate across An Existing Road Or Drive Going Thru My Property to stop usage?
No, in most cases, existing roads or drives usually have some type of easement, it may be an easement thru deed or a prescriptive easement thru time and usage. Everyone has a right to access his or her property and can not be land locked. BEFORE DOING ANYTHING!!!, get a BOUNDARY or LOT SURVEY by a Professional Alabama Land Surveyor, GLEN TANNER at GLEN TANNER LAND SURVEYING, first and then consult an Attorney.
Does A Surveyor Have To Give Me A Drawing OR A Map of Survey After Surveying My Property Or Property Lines?
No, Alabama Surveyor Standards Of Practice RULE NO. 1.03 Part 3: Land or boundary surveys performed shall be accompanied by drawing depicting the results of said survey. This rule doesn`t mean that a drawing or map of survey has to be given to the property owner, it is so that a surveyor will have a record on file at his or office for future references.This is somethng you should work out with your Alabama Land Surveyorbefore he or she starts the survey of your property.
When a survey is for a Closing or Mortgage on my house or property, do I own the Drawing or Map Of Survey?
NO,a Land Surveyors map or drawing belongs to the surveyor that is providing you with the drawing. A Land Surveyor has certain Copyrights to the DRAWING, and its CONTENTS the same as a writer has to that book or magazine your reading or a set of plans an architect prepares for someone building a new house. When a property owner,home owner, or Realtor gives a Mortgage Company or an Attorney on OLD SURVEY he or she may be open to LEGAL ACTION, BOL had sent a letter several years back to proper Companies concerning this issue, call BOL if you have ANY QUESTIONS on this issue. .
