Wolford & Chen provides the following typical services for the client:

  • Marking Property Lines:  Knowing your property lines is a critical piece of information that any homeowner or landowner should know especially before installing a new fence, taking down a tree or even paving your driveway to name a few. Can you imagine the repercussions of accidentally erecting a new fence or taking down a tree on your neighbor's property? A simple survey to determine your property lines could save you thousands of dollars in legal fees and keep you on tract on being a good neighbor.

  • House Location Survey & Plat: Many times, this type of survey may be required for the acquisition of a loan on a new home purchase or refinance. The surveyor will determine whether the house is within the property borders, whether there are any encroachments on the property and the extent to which any easements on the property may affect legal title.
