Serving Southern California since 1983



Since a person may require the services of a Professional Land Surveyor only once during their lifetime, this website has been designed to answer a few commonly asked questions and to assist in selecting a Land Surveyor. 

In general, a survey should be made before purchasing real property, when dividing any parcel of land for sale (in conformance with state laws and local ordinances), and prior to the construction of any improvements on property in which you have an interest. 

The services of a Land Surveyor today will cost less in time, worry, and money than the cost of moving improvements or defending a lawsuit later!



Only a Professional Land Surveyor (or Civil Engineer registered prior to 1982) licensed by the State Board of Registration is authorized to practice land surveying in the state of California.

Most active Land Surveyors are listed in the yellow pages of the telephone directory, or a listing may be obtained from the California Land Surveyors Association.

A Land Surveyor is an integral part of a professional team composed of attorneys, engineers, architects, planners, and landscape architects. Some land surveying firms offer comprehensive services including some, or all, of the above.

Select a reputable Land Surveyor in whose skill and judgment you can put your trust. Your selection should be made when you are sure that the professional you have chosen has all of the facts, and is completely aware of your requirements and the requirements of the governmental agency having jurisdiction over the property.
