What’s an ILC?

What's an ILC?

**Please note that we do not perform ILCs. This is an informational page only.**

An ILC is an inspection of a property conducted by a Colorado Professional Land Surveyor, to locate improvements in relation to boundary/deed lines. This is usually done to meet some requirements of either a title insurance company, lender, investor, property buyer or as stipulated in a contract to buy and sell real estate.

Its’ sole purpose and intention IS NOT to determine the exact legal limits of the property, but to serve as an inspection of the property to disclose any adverse matters from a land surveying perspective, such as encroachments onto or off of the property. The ILC is relatively inexpensive and provides all interested parties invaluable information about the property. (courtesy of http://www.copls.com)

The most common example I see is as a home buyer. You should get an ILC to ensure there are no encroachments by your future neighbor or by the current owner of the home you’re buying.

~$200 – $250

The surveyor will suggest getting a full survey, which costs ~2-3x what they charge for an ILC. Usually, they will apply the ILC charge towards the full survey. Once you’ve verified that there is an encroachment, you can work with all parties to resolve the issue.

There are a few types of surveys, but in general, a survey will mark all property boundaries. An ILC doesn’t actually mark the boundaries.

No. State law prohibits an ILC from being used to construct a fence. If there is not an existing fence, you should get a full survey so the boundaries will be marked and the fence can be constructed in the proper location. If there is a fence, an ILC may suffice to ensure that the current fence is on the right boundary.

Drew met all our requirements and needs. He did not rush us into anything we didn’t like or want. Took his time to show us every house we wanted to see on our list. Has a very easy online program for listings to notify you of any changes. Awesome Realtor!!! Would recommend him to anyone I know. Thank you Drew!

“Wow! Drew was so professional and really kept us in the know, especially after we moved. Since we had relocated to another state and left our home vacant, we were quite nervous. Drew sent us regular e-mails advising us of any showings, feedback or interest. When our offer came, his negotiation skills and advice were second to none. He did everything he could to make sure we sold our home for a price we needed. We would highly recommend him to anyone that is buying or selling a home.”

“From the start, Drew did a great job listening to our ‘wants’ for a house and taking them into account. We appreciated how proactive he was in offering alternative properties to our original list of homes. He was extremely patient throughout the entire process. He knew how best to go about making an offer and his knowledge of the market ensured that our offer on the house was accepted. We may have put a slight strain on the process by bringing in our own inspector, but in the end, it work…

“Drew was great at letting us decide what our thoughts were about each house before adding his own opinions. He was very honest about the strengths and weaks of re-sale values of each property. Drew was very professional. He was also very available when we needed him and flexible with doing showings. I liked that he was not pushy and never made me feel like he was just trying to get the sale. I think Drew genuinely cares about each of his clients and their overall happiness with his services, …
