Construction Survey | Constructing Staking
Before construction activities are started, thorough planning and design is carried out. Before and during construction a surveyor assists in this process. As expected the construction surveyor guides the placement of the constructed items by providing points to the contractor that can be used to place them in the proper location. Thus construction staking is an important piece to the construction project.
The purpose of a construction survey is to maintain and establish the necessary vertical and horizontal control points needed for the proper location of the construction items to be built. This survey may also provide measurements which are needed to determine quantities as documentation to corroborate the final payments made to the contractor.
A construction surveyor must be both qualified and experienced for the job. These essential elements should be present:
- A construction surveyor must have experience on similar construction projects.
- A construction surveyor must know how to deal with other professionals and resolve conflicts.
- A construction surveyor must pay keen attention to details.
- A construction surveyor must be able to multitask in a demanding environment.
The construction surveyor's job demands a lot of knowledge, time, skill, and energy. Not every land surveyor is qualified to undertake this work.
Elevation Certificate | Flood Elevation Survey
Covington County completed the process of updating the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) in 2009, making it possible to determine the flood risk in specific areas in and around Andalusia. These maps show the areas of potential flooding based on the 1-percent chance storm event, known in the past as the 100 year flood and also known as the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).
An Elevation Certificate is required for any flood insurance quote. Flood insurance is mandatory if your loan is federally insured - and most are these days.
Your potential situation according to the flood map is one of these options:
- Your lot and home are OUT of the flood hazard zone - No Insurance Required
- Your lot is shown IN the flood hazard zone - then either a) your Lowest Adjacent Grade (LAG) is below the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) - you'll need an elevation certificate and flood insurance, OR b) your LAG is above the BFE - you may be able to get your home removed from the flood zone and the need for flood insurance using a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA.)
We also can help you with a LOMA if your home qualifies for this procedure. This process can save you lots of money over the years.
Lot Survey| Mortgage Survey | Closing Survey
A Lot Survey may also be known as a “Closing Survey” or “Mortgage Survey.” Typically, this type of survey is done at the request of banks, realtors, attorneys, and title companies prior to a home loan closing. It is usually understood to be a survey of a residential lot in a recorded subdivision.
A lot survey provides assurance to the lender and buyer that the property they are purchasing is what has been represented by the seller. This may be one of the most important types of surveys for a homeowner since your home is usually your largest lifetime investment.
While a physical home inspection focuses on the condition of the building, a mortgage survey investigates the property itself. This lot survey can reveal a lot of information on possible problems like encroachments of driveways, fences, or buildings. Unforseen easements may also affect your use of the property in the way you intend.
