Deed and Map Research
A key part of a land surveyor's job is the ability to conduct research, gather documentation regarding a specific property and analyze this data to address many land development, construction, land ownership, and land improvement projects. Research projects can include recorded maps, deeds, control data, title data, zoning, and land planning requirements.
TKM Land Surveyors helps property owners identify and resolve ambiguities in their deed or a neighbor's deed. Performing deed research can be a very time complicated and time consuming task especially for property owners who are unfamiliar with the process. TKM Land Surveyors streamlines this process by
preparing a Deed Sketch and or a Deed Chain which shows the owners of the property from the current owner back to a certain period of time. In some situations, a boundary survey will be undertaken once the Deed Sketch is completed.
Research will be conducted by TKM Land Surveyors using a variety of sources including existing survey maps recorded at County Clerk's offices, highway departments, and other agencies to determine what, if any, impact this information might have on property boundaries. TKM Land Surveyors has helped
property owners in Atherton, Menlo Park, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Cupertino, San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell and other cities in Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Contra Costa counties with their deed and map research.
