Virginia. The owner had a survey done 10 years ago when she bought it. And nothing has changed since she got it. Do we still need a survey? and why?

Yes. Ten years ago the equipment used to survey property was ok. Today they are outdated as new laser technology is used. It has been found that new surveys on same property has uncovered encroachments not found on old surveys. Therefore the old equipment used is not accurate by today's standards.
