The average cost of property or land surveying is between $300 and $700, with a low cost of $200, and a high cost of $1,000, as of 2015. Surveyors determine their fees based on variables that include the size of the property and how difficult the property is to access.
Surveyors often charge a specified hourly rate and then estimate the price of the survey by the amount of hours they figure it will take to complete it. A surveyor generally researches official records for information on boundaries, and actually measures out the property in the field. A completed survey is a certified map of the property, and it includes legal documents and property plans.
