Buying Highlands NC Real Estate, Is Survey Necessary?

Is a survey necessary when buying Highlands NC real estate? This is a great question.  A survey is always a good idea but not always a contingency in a contract.  While a buyer should always expect to see a home inspection in a contract he may not always expect a survey.  That being said, a survey can guarantee that a buyer understand the property boundaries.  You should discuss the survey with your Highlands NC REALTOR.

A survey is often a requirement for a loan. In this case a lender often schedules the survey and you pay for the service.  The survey ensures that the property you think you are buying is exactly what you think it is.  In some circumstances a driveway for a neighboring home may be encroaching on your property, in other cases perhaps the opposite.  Knowing the exact details of the boundaries of your Highlands NC property is important.  It is especially important to a lender to know if there are easements and encroachments or encumbrances associated with the lot lines.
