We did a property survey in Lexington the other day for a homeowner planning to have an addition built on his house. Once we completed this Lexington land survey, we discovered that part of the property is in protected wetlands. Unfortunately, after consulting with a wetlands specialist, the homeowner learned that his planned addition could not be built. It’s always a good idea to have a land survey done before buying a property, that way you are less likely to run into surprises like these down the road. In a case like this, the homeowner might have reconsidered purchasing the property.
