We have a professional services and disclosure form in NC which covers all the services a home buyer can avail themselves of. They choose or decline. If they decline critical items like inspections and surveys, I make them initial the form declining. That way if there is a problem down the line, they can't say I never told them they could have inspections and surveys. Before we had this form, if someone turned down inspections or surveys, I'd just prepare a note for their signature and date.
I would want them to sign off on the fact that I have advised them to do so and they didn't. There can be zoning and subdividing problems if you do not have a certain size property, for example. Or there are some old fences up and you, the buyer, take it for granted that this is the lot line which can be totally wrong. So many reasons.
Up to them if they want this.
Just do it!
Good answers here from Nina and Hella.
I will leave it to the buyers - let them ask.
Only if you want to sell it.
YES,...without a survey.....how do they really know what they are selling ?
Yes, survey. Many times land like that falls under JLMA ( Joint Land Management), which means that both the city and county have to approve any plans for the land, and usually it's the city or town that has control to approve what's done with the land.
My answer is that sometime the builder needs to hae a survey site plan. I tell them it is for their own good. I then make them sign a disclosure showing that I suggested that it wouold be a good idea.
I like to get it in writing when a buyer decides not to do an inspection or a survey. That way I'm covered in that I have talked with them about this option.
Would it make any difference to them if it was within city limits and slightly less than an acre? Are they going to build anything on it or just look at it? That's why they'll want a survey Raoul Loustaunau but, no, they do not need one in order to purchase it.
I would put my recommendation in writing through email. After that, I have to let consumers do as they wish. I just like to cover myself.
I answer no it is not mandatory but it is my best advice that you should to protect your investment.
