A: In New Mexico, a seller can technically sign a warranty deed without a land survey, but it is not recommended. A land survey is an important document that provides a detailed and accurate description of the property's boundaries, including any easements, encroachments, or other relevant information.

Without a land survey, there may be uncertainties about the exact boundaries of the property, which could lead to potential disputes or legal issues in the future. An Improvement Location Report (ILR) may provide some basic information about the property's location and improvements, but it is not a substitute for a comprehensive land survey.
