Can RI Land Surveyors Only Survey One Property Line?

Can RI Land Surveyors Only Survey One Property Line?
Boundary Field Suvey

RI Boundary Field Suvey

A question that customers contacting Foster Survey Company looking to hire a RI land surveyor often asked, is: Can RI land surveyors only survey one property line? My answer to that question is this: Yes, and maybe.

There is not one straightforward answer because the customer asking whether Rhode Island land surveying companies will survey only “one” boundary or property line is really asking to cut the survey cost by only setting out “one” property line.

So sure, a RI land surveyor performing a boundary field survey possibly can set monuments for only one property line, but most of the time, the entire property must first be surveyed to find the boundary locations. There simply are not any large savings with the limited reduction in level of effort when only monumenting one property line.
