How do I get a copy of a survey of my house?

First check the documents you received when you closed on your house, as this often includes a survey. You can check with the Union County Register of Deeds Office; however, such records do not always exist. In this case you may have to have a survey done.

How do I schedule a final zoning inspection?

Contact the Planning Technician Matthew West at mwest@stallingsnc.org by forwarding the as-built survey of all new structures and an inspection will be scheduled.
