GROTHMAN & ASSOCIATES|
A mortgage survey is used to retrace a parcelís boundary lines according to that parcelís recorded deed and to locate improvements on a parcel. Sometimes referred to as a plat of survey, banks and title companies use this survey to verify that no encroachments, occupation or deed line discrepancies are associated with the property.
A mortgage survey is not intended to be a survey of the premises. This inspection is for the clients information and is not to be used for new construction or other purposes. Lot distances are usually taken from the deed furnished by the client.
