Should I have a Geotechnical Survey when I buy waterfront property?

IMG_4181When dealing with waterfront properties that sit on mid to high bank, it a smart idea to have Geotechnical Survey done. Most sellers will include the study before they sell to make it more marketable. Most building permits will require the survey in order to build a new home. Many home owners want to build as close to the hill/edge to capture the best views, but this could be a bad idea if there is a history of slides in an area.
