As with everything you purchase, you need to know exactly what you are buying. A survey, prepared by a professional land surveyor, will show in detail exactly what you have purchased. Since for most people, the purchase of a home is their single largest investment, they should make every effort to protect that investment. The survey will confirm that the property shown by the real estate agent and described in the contract is in fact the property that was conveyed.
Also, the bank or mortgage company, in order to protect their interest in the property, may require a new survey. You can hire a professional surveyor to complete a plat of survey of your property or search the Kenosha County Land Survey Viewer Database to see if we have a survey for your property in our database.
