PARTITION AND SUBDIVISION PLATS
Partition Plats (3 lots or less) and Subdivion Plats (4 lots or more) are the tradition means of subdividing property. We provide limited application services on partition plats and the smaller subdivision plats. The services of a professional planner, civil engineer and other design professionals are typically required. We provide all of the preliminary plat mapping, final plat mapping, the staking of the lot corners, and construction staking of any improvements.
BOUNDARY AND TOPGRAPHIC DESIGN SURVEY
A boundary and topographic design survey (or existing conditions survey) is provided as base mapping for an engineer, architect or other design professional to develop plans for a proposed building or land development project. Depending on the needs of the project, the survey typically provides the location of all existing conditions of the property including contour lines, elevations, natural features, trees, utility services, street information and the property boundary lines. Easements, encroachments or other encumbrances are also typically shown on the survey.

A condominium plat is one of the most common surveys we provide. We have a thourough understanding of the rules and regulations to provide a condominium plat and have been providing this service since 1972. We work well with the local agencies, attorneys and clients to produce a plat that will record in a timely manner and be cost effective.
A condominium plat is a means by which a person can purchase a home and share land ownership and other common elements. The plat provides detailed as-constructed measurements of the building, dwelling units, parking spaces and other items exclusive to a unit. The plat is prepared in conjunction with the declaration, which is provided by an attorney.
