Surveyors and wetlands scientists are great people to contact when you are buying land or building a structure on an existing property. When buying land, it is important to know if there are wetlands on the property because there are rules and regulations on building near wetlands. You will need to know if the land is “buildable” by hiring a wetlands scientist. They will do soil testing and a perc test to determine if the lot is buildable and how big of a septic you can have (if you need a septic).
Shoreland experts are people to call when you are buying waterfront property. There are rules to follow when remodels, landscaping, docks, or new building is happening on waterfront. You definitely want to know these rules because there are big fines to pay!
