Are all of your surveys delivered either in a map or report of survey format? I was asked to "mark the property corners" that define the shared boundary with the client's neighbor. Of course, she needs this to install a fence to keep things civil between her and her neighbor. I usually provide a map or report of survey with each project. This is my first fence survey. Is this any different?
I always provide a map showing what I did, and the type of equipment and controls that I used to do it. I feel this is the minimum and leaves the client with something tangible that they can refer to. Just this morning I took a call from a client who I did a survey for in 1999, and another who got my name off their neighbor's map.
A report or map is required with your seal and signature on any work that is final. I require payment prior to sending the report or map out.
Be careful with "fence survey". A boundary is a boundary and there really is no "fence survey" classification in the board rules. Below is a snippit from a report i did a while back. The owner to the left had a company build him a fence without a survey. There were metal tposts at each end that the company used to build the fence. The metal tposts were just there to point to the corner a foot away. I was working for the owner on the right. The guy on the left came out and i figured my stakes would be gone about 5 minutes after I left, so I added some pics to the report.
No such thing as a fence survey in North Carolina, we have to do at a minimum a Report of Survey.
