Trusted NYC Subdivision Survey Team

Subdivision surveying is a plot or map survey. It is based on a survey of a parcel of land. Inside the large parcel of land are drawn boundary lines. These lines indicate the creation of new boundaries and roads. Plats are created with these lines, which are the newly created parcels. The number and location of plats are then typically discussed back and forth between the developer and the surveyor until there is an agreement. Then monuments, which are usually in the form of square concrete blocks or iron rods or pins, are subsequently driven into the ground to mark the lot corners and curve ends. The plat is recorded in the cadastre.​

There are two different measures with how to properly complete a subdivision survey. To determine which methodology is best, we will evaluate your particular situation beforehand and properly determine the course of action. The two systems that can be chosen are lot-and-block subdivision and metes-and-bound system. ​

Lot and Block System

This is the most common way to delineate individual lots with the main tract. Surveyors use a plat map to organize the information. Then, a surveyor will assign a letter or number to each lot on the plat map. They use these as identifiers. An engineer or a recorder of deeds will record these identifiers for documenting purposes. Then the plan becomes the legal description of all the lots in the subdivision. A quick reference to that particular lot and the map's place of record is simply all you need for the proper legal description. ​
