@shazamalot: would you care to give any information about your location? (in general terms, e.g. which state if in the U.S.)
In the northeastern U.S. there are county registries of deeds. Based on the comments on @KeithB's post, since your house is of recent construction, the lot probably is as well (although not necessarily), and therefore the deed should reference some other recorded document, either a survey map, or the metes and bounds of the survey. (the verbal description of directions and distances)
I see metal property marker on my lot, and I see how a survey would confirm whether these markers are still in the same position as described in the survey.
You shouldn't have to have it resurveyed -- if the property markers are intact and were set by registered land surveyors, those markers and a document that describes them are sufficient. The first thing a surveyor is going to do before they do any measurements is find the most recent document of record.
If you live somewhere where real estate takes shortcuts, or your lot was created/subdivided more than a few decades ago, you may have to get it resurveyed.
