How much will a survey cost?
Improvement Location Certificates (ILC) also known as mortgage certificates will average around $500.00 along with a mileage charge in some instances.
Boundary type Survey projects around 5-10 acres in size, located in dedicated subdivisions, may be estimated at $800.00 -$1500.00 in cost.
Larger Boundary Survey Projects will require a custom quote based on the size, difficulty, research and time required.
It is important that in many situations, the Professional Land Surveyor cannot predict the amount of work that will be required to recover necessary monuments, restore lost, moved, or obliterated corners, research city and county records, collect field data, complete mathematical calculations, and prepare descriptions and plats/maps of the property. All of this must be combined and analyzed thoroughly to establish the location of property corners and create the final plat.
One of the most uncertain factors in the cost of a survey is the recovery of government monuments. It is important for property owners and the general public to be aware that certain monuments ie: (Section Corners) are required by a regulatory physical standard to be established or upgraded when necessary, and paperwork filed with the State of Colorado in accordance with those regulations.
Licensure as a Professional Land Surveyor is earned through years of education and experience and only then by successful completion of a series of licensing examinations.
The experience and references of several surveyors should be considered before one is selected to perform your survey.
When should I have my land surveyed?
You should have your land surveyed before you purchase it, or when you believe there may be a conflict of use between adjacent property owners, or prior to dividing any parcel of land intended for sale. A Land survey will disclose the relationship between the lines of possession (fences etc.) and the deeded property lines. A lending institution may require either a Land Survey Plat or an Improvement Location Certificate of your property when you borrow money on it.
Duties of the Professional Land Surveyor:
A Professional Land Surveyor renders a highly technical service to the Client. As a licensed professional, the services provided by the surveyor must comply with several applicable laws, regulations, standards, and codes which have been established by state, county, local governments and professional societies.
In addition, a Professional Land Surveyor is qualified to:
Create a property description for all new parcels or any existing parcels that may have a defect. Appear in court as an expert witness concerning real property ownership, location, or use. Assist you in the planning and layout of the Lots, Blocks, streets, easements, etc. in a new subdivision.
How do I authorize a land survey?
Explain why you want the survey. The surveyor can then advise you as to what type of survey is required. You should furnish the Professional Land Surveyor with a legal description of the property along with all other information or documents that you may have regarding the parcel. These would include deeds, abstracts of title, title reports, previous survey reports and maps, and the current location of any presumed corner monuments.
The Professional Land Surveyor will present a written agreement authorization to proceed with costs, time and the particulars involved in your survey project prior to conducting your survey.
Protect your investment:
In order to protect your investment, it is best to retain a Professional Land Surveyor prior to the planning of your development and investment of funds.
The Professional Land Surveyor can locate the boundaries of a property upon which improvements are planned and constructed, and can layout proposed improvements on your property. These professional services assure that your improvements are positioned correctly, possibly preventing costly complications.

These well known men were all land surveyors at some point in their lives.
We wish to thank GeoMark Surveying for their hard work and professionalism. We had a complicated, large piece of property and they were willing to take on the challenge. They communicated with us through every step and took the time to ensure we understood all aspects of our property. We were more than satisfied with the end result and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a surveyor!
