Loss of Deed Area

Loss of Deed Area

The 2003 survey at left shows a significant loss of area (about 3.7 acres out of 15) compared to that called for in the deed. The loss of area is shown in red. The previous surveyor was incompetent, causing an enormous overlap with adjacent properties.

The driveway used for access has no legal easement or right-of-way. The adjacent owners could challenge its use.

The wire fence at the southern end of the property does not follow the actual boundary.

You never know what kind of problems a good survey might uncover. Would you buy this? Would you pay the same money originally offered? What if you bought without benefit of a survey?
