The County Surveyor is responsible for maintaining survey records and for reviewing property boundary surveys, parcel maps, and subdivision maps prior to filing the maps with the County Recorder. In Nevada County, the County Surveyor also reviews lot line adjustments and other real property matters that require County approval. View County Surveyor fees (PDF).
The County Surveyor does not survey property. Property Owners may contract with a private surveying or engineering firm to do so.
Agreements to pay protect the submitter from being liable for additional charges that may be incurred during review of the ROS by the County Surveyor. Additional charges are the responsibility of the entity named on the form.
