reading a survey


when the survey says "building cor. is 0.7'E " i assume this means about 9", and of course, the east side ?

cor, likely means corner
0.7' means 0.7 feet, which is 8.4 inches
E means east

D.H. has explained the individual terms but, as a matter of interest, what is it that is 8.4" from the corner on the east side? Is the building leaning in that direction or something? Just curious.

Without seeing the survey I can not be sure; but typically that notation appears where there is not enough room on the survey to insert a distance between the structure and the lot line. E.g. if the notation is for an accessory building that is near a lot line you know the corner of the shed is 7/10ths of a foot from the lot line. If this does not make sense then perhaps you can scan that portion of the survey and post it.

then the front of his house would be 0.7' (measured perpendicular) from the lot line, and the rear is 0.6' (again measured perpendicular) from the lot line. at least at all the engineering/surveying companies I've worked for in the past 30 plus years that is what the numbers would mean.
