A subdivision survey is necessary when a single piece of land is subdivided into multiple lots. First, a surveyor needs to do a boundary survey on the entire lot. Then the surveyor can subdivide into smaller parcels,  a form of a boundary survey so the subdivision design can be completed. Next, the surveyor will do a boundary or lot survey to ensure that the design of the individual lots is consistent with the design of the subdivision. This survey is done any time land is subdivided, including for housing tracts, or selling a portion of your residential or commercial land.

What is a subdivision survey?

A subdivision survey is a surveying service to divide a larger tract of land into smaller individual lots or parcels. The process involves measurement, analysis, and mapping to delineate precise boundaries for each new lot, ensuring accurate land division.

The surveyor examines existing legal descriptions, physical markers, adjacent properties, and local zoning regulations. Then the surveyor creates an authoritative map, referred to as a plat, to illustrate the exact configuration of the subdivided lots.

This subdivision survey becomes the foundation for new property lines. Each subdivided lot can then be allowed to have independent ownership and utilization. This enables the creation of residential neighborhoods, commercial centers, and recreational spaces.
