“Plot Plans” again
An attorney contacts me and asks if I do “plot plans” (aren’t all plans plotted?) and how much would I charge?
The licensing board used to have technical specification on how to perform “mortgage inspection” (their preferred terminology), however, now the guidelines are pretty much left to our own professional judgement. So, in my professional judgement I would not be performing any mortgage inspections and the term “plot plan” makes me cringe.
Anyway, I told her it depends on whether there are distinct boundaries and that survey measurements need to be made. The only answers that can be obtained from a drive by survey would be if the house was situated on the property. No answers regarding setbacks or whether the property meets the zoning requirements.
The attorney needs is a document produced for a lending institution and the lending institution will only allow for a fee of one hundred fifty dollars.
If lending institutions can dictate the land surveyor’s fees, shouldn’t land surveyors be able to give a determination on interest rates for lending institutions?
