Home About us Our FAQ Local info GIS

What factors govern how long a survey takes?

We start from the legal description on your deed. The description includes information on what section, township and range your land is in, and the specific information about where your property is within the section. While preparing the estimate, we check to see what work we have done in that section before, and we look for work previously done by other surveyors.

A typical boundary survey includes research, section measurements, marking the corners and lines of your parcel, and preparing a Certificate of Survey (map). You may also want us to map the shoreline, or map the location of your existing driveway and house.

Difficult access to the necessary section corners or to your property corners will add time to that phase.

If your lines are short and road access is easy, that may reduce the cost. Travel time from Grand Marais can also be a factor.
