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.

The County Surveyor does not survey the property. Property Owners may contract with a private surveying or engineering firm to do so.
