- Ranch Boundary Surveys and Subdivisions
Rocky Mountain Surveying specializes in Ranch Surveys and Ranch Subdivisions. Many people buy property based on deeds there were sometimes poorly written and this causes boundary issues. With that in mind we work closely with the ranch owner to solve these possible issues.
The purposes of recording this information is to provide survey data for subsequent land surveys as well as make the results of the monumented land survey a matter of public record, which may help to protect the property owner’s interests in the property. The boundary survey includes several items laid out in the Colorado Revised Statutes 38-51-106.
- Land Survey Plats
A Land Survey Plat (LSP) must be filed with the appropriate county, while performing a monumented land survey (property pin survey) on a parcel of land that is located in a platted subdivision that was filed over 20 years ago (as pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute 38-51-107) or on a parcel of unplatted land. The LSP is a map of the monumented land survey, which is deposited in the clerk and recorders office.

- Improvement Survey Plats
An Improvement Survey Plat (ISP) is an extended form of a Land Survey Plat, which shows the locations of all structures (improvements) within the parcel of interest. These include visible utilities, conflicting boundary evidence or visible encroachments, and any fences, hedges, or walls on or within five feet of all boundaries of the parcel.
The ISP must also show the location of all easements on the subject parcel for which there is visible surface evidence such as flagging or paint marks provided by the appropriate utility company, and tunnels for which property recorded evidence is available from the County, Title Company, or other source specified on the ISP.
