Hiring a land surveyor is the only legally acceptable way to definitely establish true property lines. If a property boundary conflict escalates to the point where the courts are involved, a land survey will be court-ordered.
A home and the surrounding land is usually a family's biggest single investment, making it important for homeowners to know exactly where their property starts and ends. Lane Bishop & Associates can set the record straight when it comes to establishing legally binding property lines, preventing both costly legal disputes and irreversible damage to neighborhood relations. Complications with even one boundary line can hamper the sale of the property in question.
Lane S. Bishop & Associates have been appointed by the courts to perform boundary surveys. Usually the parties in the court case have agreed to have us perform the survey and the results will be binding by the parties involved. We have been appointed by the courts as a Commissioner for Partitions to divide property for each party. At times we have been asked by both parties to survey the property before it gets to costly.

Lane S.

We have often reviewed field staking data and procedures by other surveyors to ensure compliance with all laws.

If an automotive, other vehicle or roadway-related accident has recently happened, you may need to have an accident survey conducted. In many cases, the highway patrol officers themselves may use surveying equipment at the scene of an accident for their own records. In these situations, the equipment is most often used directly following the accident, before the roadway has been re-opened to traffic.
An accident survey can be used as evidence in court to show the scene of the accident, and may become necessary for your insurance company or to fight any court case ensuing from the accident. In the best-case scenario, the surveyor arrives before you have left the scene and before anything has been towed away. An accident survey that is completed after the accident has been cleared may or may not be helpful, depending on the situation.
