A lot goes into being a surveyor. It’s a lot of work that requires a certain skill set, for one thing. Then there’s the business side of things. Combined, it can be a difficult field to get into, especially when you consider all the regulations involved. One example of this is the Vermont land surveyor seal you have to use in order to comply with the law in your professional role.
Unfortunately, just securing a Vermont land surveyor seal isn’t enough. It’s a good step in the right direction, but you’ll also have to make sure that the one you receive is compliant with state demands. Let’s start looking over what that calls for. Thankfully, it’s really only a few things.
The Dimensions of the Vermont Land Surveyor Seal
First, your Vermont land surveyor seal shouldn’t be any more than 1-1/2" in diameter. It can’t be any less though either. This might seem like an odd requirement, but just remember that it’s the law. Furthermore, to anyone who has worked with this seal, they’ll probably notice immediately if yours isn’t the right size.
Furthermore, the lettering on your seal must be no less than 1/10" tall. This is roughly 10 point font.
How the Vermont Land Surveyor Seal Appears
Next, you want to look at how the Vermont land surveyor seal actually appears. Fortunately, it’s about as basic as these seals get. The outer perimeter is perforated, which is a very common choice. Like the surveyor states used by most other states, there is also a circle on the inside. This one’s outline is dotted.
Between the inner circle and the perimeter, your stamp should read, “State of Vermont” going across the top. Then, down below, it should say, “Licensed Land Surveyor.”
In the middle of the circle is where your name goes. Your name must appear as it did on your application for the Vermont land surveyor seal.
Finally, below that, still inside the circle, your license number must be listed. It has to begin with the prefix “No.” and then a space though.
Again, the stamp itself isn’t the most intricate example you could find, so this whole process should only take you a minute or so.
