Customer Testimonials

I have lived at my property for many years however, never had it surveyed. I retained this company to do a survey for me. They revealed problems with my property that I did not know existed. They worked with me to figure out what options I had for resolving these issues. I was more than happy with their work.

From Our Website

Whether you intend to purchase new land or you have plans to build on property you already own, there are several reasons why you may need a land survey. But just why is getting one so important?

As the technology in the world grew, the job of the land surveyor decreased inversely. Much like how the factory worker was being replaced with machinery that could do the same job, so too were land surveyors. We know that we here at LaFave, White & McGivern are far from the only professional land surveying firm operating in the state of New York.

While land surveying may sound like a self-explanatory profession, there are actually many different types of surveys that can be performed. A memorial fund has been setup for a young land surveyor who recently lost his life while on the job. If you own or manage a commercial business, farm, or any other type of property, you may be wondering exactly how you could benefit from aerial photography services. It's no surprise to hear that drones being used for commercial use such as with land surveying has largely been restricted or banned, especially in high air traffic areas like major cities.
