Estate/Family Division Survey

Quite often Family and Estate Surveys consist of multiple parcels of land that have been passed down from generation to generation to preserve a family’s heritage or legacy. The results of Family and Estate Division surveys are usually the same as a boundary survey or informal subdivision to split property between heirs based on wishes of the grantee (often parent) through a will or court decision if a will not in place and parties cannot agree upon the split. The intent often is to divide an estate left to a family based on the Grantors wishes or Courts decision which can be very trying for all parties involved as emotions are normally heavy due to the loss of a loved one. These often are conveyed through a will or judgement of the court if parties cannot agree upon an equitable split of the property.

It is the surveyor’s duty to follow the guidance laid out to ensure the property is divided in accordance with the documentation provided. Furthermore, adequate access to all properties created are needed to provide that land does not become landlocked and that utilities can serve the individual properties should they be developed or sold to an outside party in the future.

Estate Family Division Survey
This type of survey is often the most challenging as they are normally the result of a tremendous loss to the family. Polysurveying’s approach is to provide and overall boundary survey of the estate at the onset of taking on an estate or family division to accurately depict what is available for splitting and located all improvements that may be critical to the split at direction of the client. We then have all parties sign off on a sketch plat that we create on paper of the division with the utilization of aerial maps, access and acreage determinations to make the process as easy as possible. In using this process, we can give the parties ample time to work out any changes prior to setting final corners, plotting easements and finalizing the division with all necessary descriptions needed to complete their division.
In this challenging time, we understand the sensitivity of this type of work and take our time to ensure all parties are comfortable with final product so that everyone can move forward confidently and collectively.
