In the Citizens of Bloomfield Facebook group, someone asked for recommendations for companies that conduct land surveys.

Land surveying is a technique used to determine the where a property begins and ends as well as the distance between those points. It’s used to create maps and determine property ownership.

There was discussion about whether or not such surveys are required when someone sells or buys a home. Here was the conclusion.

Cinytha Guallpa called their attorney and found out that “banks no longer require surveys to be done at the time of purchase” though it seems from others who commented that they used to. It does seem like it is something you could negotiate when selling or purchasing property.
