Right of Way (ROW) Surveys

What is a Right of Way Survey?

A right-of-way easement is an example of property rights that can allow others the use of your property. A right of way (ROW) survey allows anyone to pass through a portion of your land that may be considered public. A right-of-way survey would include the establishment of all boundary lines and road crossings by the line along its route. A right-of-way survey is a boundary survey depicting the limits of private ownership and that of the entity/agency that has the interest or jurisdiction of the subject property. To remove them from your deed, both parties need to agree.  A right of way easement is documented in a property owner's Title Report.

Why is a Right of Way Important?

A right-of-way easement documented as part of the boundary survey process can affect your property values. Future buyers may not like the idea that there is an easement on the property as you cannot, generally speaking, build on a easement.
