A boundary survey is typically ordered by home or business owners to identify the property lines of a parcel. The property corners will be located and verified or re-set with a monument in the ground. The improvements on the property will be located and a check for violations or encroachments onto or from the subject property will be made. Flood plan certification is restricted to a review of the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) but shall not be construed as a confirmation or denial of flooding potential.
