We worked with the team at C&P and they were great. They turned around our work in half the time as everyone else, did a thorough and accurate job and were priced in line with everyone else. We’ll be using them again for sure.

CP Land Surveying was very efficient & professional. We spoke Monday they sent out their surveyors Thursday & I received our Certification letter Monday. I like that because we were on hold until this letter gets to the SSF Engineering Dept., for review! Excellent!

Great price and service, very pleased We were very pleased with our experience using Christensen & Plouff Land Surveying. The crew that visited our 2 acre site had a strong work ethic as I watched their progress. No slacking around as they went straight to business surveying our hill covered in brush. Kacie was great on follow-up and in my opinion did a few extra things for us at no extra charge from original quote. Very pleased and I hope they continue their success and helping others like me.

The team at CP are the best at what they do. Their turnaround is awesome and I always have a wonderful experience working with them. I’ve worked with many surveyors around town and this team does an amazing job and they are the fastest and cheapest I have found. I use them on all of my projects and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

I needed an Elevation Certificate to obtain a discount on flood insurance (which I wanted due to upcoming El Nino warnings.) I had received an estimate from a non-local engineering firm I found online and needed another estimate. I found Christensen & Plouff (by adding Santa Clarita to my search query) and contacted them mid-morning. Within an hour or so, I had a response, and an estimate by the end of the day. Christensen & Plouff was less than half of the cost of the other firm! I spoke with them about some details in the agreement and they were very thorough and professional in their explanations. They had room in their schedule to do the survey the next morning and I had the Elevation Certificate digitally in hand by the end of that day. The other company was estimating a 10 day window. I am beyond pleased with the quality and efficiency of their services. If I (or my friends) ever have future need of Land Surveying services, I will definitely be calling Christensen & Plouff again.

I recently bought a house in Santa Clarita and the plat map of the property seemed to show that my land was larger than what I had been led to believe was the land belonging to the house due the to the way that the yard had been fenced in. In such circumstances, you need the services a professional surveyor. My first communication with Christensen & Plouff was responded to within 24 hours. I answered a few questions that they had during our initial phone call, they had taken the time to look up my property on the Internet, and were able to give me a rough quote, which was more-or-less what I ended up paying upon conclusion of their services. Now my property has markers/monuments to denote each angle of the property, even going up the slope of a hill through thick brush. I have peace-of-mind that when I build a fence to replace the old one or when I work on the yard that I am clear on what is my property and what is the property of the neighbor. A land survey may not be for every homeowner, but if you were like me and actually didn’t know where your property lines were, I recommend Christensen & Plouff to have that question professionally answered to remove any doubt.

I am an architect involved in many residential and commercial projects throughout Los Angeles. Christensen & Plouff land surveyors are my go to surveyors. Their topographic surveys are the best I’ve ever seen; very detailed and accurate. I recommend CP for all of our projects.

C & P were retained to do a topological survey and slope band analysis on a spec home I’m developing. The work needed to be done relatively quickly. They delivered excellent work on time and on budget. Their prices were more than fair and throughout the process she was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended for your surveying needs.

As a Design & Build Firm, our company Noesis Group has been using the professional services of the team at C&P Land Surveying over the past few years now. With tremendous professionalism, responsiveness, and accuracy, C&P has been and continues to be our partner to some of the most complicated residential development projects out there. Even at times as busy as these, the customer care and loyalty of C&P is of the highest standard. Whether it would be for a simple boundary survey or a lot more complicated elections, contours, etc… I strongly recommend partnering with the team behind C&P.

Very responsive and have a streamlined process – Provided an official quote within 2 days – Gave me an appointment the week after – On request were able to expedite the final report over the weekend – Made my payments online and received pdf and cad files via email Pricing also seemed very reasonable and competitive. Most other firms I had contacted were either too busy or simply did not respond. Will be on my recommend list for sure!
