Is a survey necessary if an attorney has certified that
the title to the property is clear?
A clear title means that the owner has a lawful right to sell the property.
It does not locate or identify the property on the ground and does not guarantee that the acreage is correct. In addition,
title insurance policies do not insure the buyer against defects that would have been discovered if a full boundary survey
had been performed.
Shown below are some Bausch and Lomb surveying instruments
from the early 1900's. We've come a long way since then!
