The purpose of a Record of Survey is to document the physical placement of property corner monuments (also known as corner staking). A Record of Survey Map is required when it has been determined that your property’s boundary corners have not been defined on an existing recorded Record of Survey Map, a Parcel Map or a Tract Map.

A Record of Survey Map must be prepared by a licensed land surveyor in accordance with the requirements of the Professional Land Surveyors’ Act. The Record of Survey Map is submitted to the County Surveyor’s office for review and approval. Upon approval, it is then filed with the County Surveyor’s office.

Note: If a property corner has already been defined on an existing recorded Record of Survey Map, a Parcel Map or a Tract Map, then a Corner Record will be required.
