A survey is a formal measurement of the boundaries, dimensions, and elevations of a piece of real estate. It's conducted by a professional surveyor to accurately determine the size and shape of the property.
For example, if someone is buying a piece of land, they may hire a surveyor to conduct a survey to determine the exact boundaries of the property. This information can be used to create a legal description of the property and to identify any potential issues such as encroachments or easements.

A survey's a formal measure,
Of a property's size and treasure.
A pro surveyor does the task,
To identify any potential encroach or ask.
