SELECTING A LAND SURVEYOR

  • FIRST AND FOREMOST, Make sure when Selecting A Land Surveyor, that whoever you are considering using is a __LICENSED LAND SURVEYOR__!
  • Selecting A Land Surveyor is important. Is the Land Surveyor in charge actually performing the work in the field and office, OR will his Field Crew and a Drafting Technician be doing all the work?
  • When Selecting A Land Surveyor , if a Field Crew is used, how much experience and training does the Party Chief and Instrument Technician have? THIS IS IMPORTANT IF the Land Surveyor In Charge ISN'T doing the work!
  • Does the Land Surveyor In Charge come out to the field or job site to make sure All work has been done correctly by his crew before finalizing his or her survey? This is very important in Selecting A Land Surveyor.
  • Is the Land Surveyor in GOOD standings with the Board Of Licensure For Professional Engineers And Land Surveyors? This is HIGHLY important in Selecting A Land Surveyor, to protect you and your property.

Call the Board Of Licensure For Professional Engineers And Land Surveyors at (334-242-5568) or TOLL FREE (866-461-7640) and ask if the Land Surveyor you are considering hiring has ANY violations, past OR present. This is VERY IMPORTANT to help protect your interest and your property. The Board Of Licensure For Professional Engineers And Land Surveyors will be glad to help, it is their job.


  • Something that you should ask when Selecting A Land Surveyor, will the Land Surveyor in charge come out, walk you around your property and explain his or her survey to you, if need be? This may not be necessary on surveys located in a residential subdivision, but it's something to keep in mind if you're buying rural property.
  • The cost of a survey is important, but, it is also important to know who and what you are getting when selecting a Land Surveyor, for your money, before you hire a Land Surveyor.
  • Consider this - what would you think if you met with a doctor about an operation you need, then you get to the hospital to have the nurse perform the operation? Or say you met with an attorney about closing your house or a court case, only to show up and have the office clerk handling your case? I DON`T THINK SO. So should you expect less out of your Land Surveyor when Selecting A Land Surveyor?
