Realty Times has published a good article on surveys, Survey Reality: Is What I See, What I Get? by P.J. Wade.
As I stand on my front porch admiring my small, but spectacular, spring garden, nestled under my two towering spruce trees, I am very wrong about everything I see. Most of my urban garden - plants, trees, rocks, retaining wall… - is not “mine," but the government's.That's because properties seldom begin at the street curb line, but further in to a spot somewhere on your lawn. The full article, which can be read here, goes a long way in disclosing common misconceptions about your visible boundaries and the need for a survey.
