Why does it take so long to do a survey?

Hi Brian;

A basic residential survey typically takes 5-10 business days to complete. That includes up-front research, field work, plan drafting and final plan checking. The work will take a month (or more) if it's in some way more complex than a standard residential lot, or, more likely, the surveyor has more than your job that his firm is working on at the same time, so the 7-10 days of work are completed over a longer period of time. If your job is time-sensitive, as for a contract from your surveyor stating when they commit to completing the job.
