You real estate agent or attorney can order it for you. If you are just considering it then you could request a copy of a previous one from the current owner. If they are unable to come up with it, you can try stopping by the township office. I have often been able to retrieve a copy this way by filling out a form and paying a small fee. Be aware that this is simply a copy from a previous owner and may not reflect additions or changes to the dwelling, fence lines etc. If you are just trying to take a look at the lay of this proposed plot you can also request a copy of the tax record from your local realtor or township office. It's also cool to check it out on google earth! Best of luck to you!

Typically this has to come from a surveyor, and it will come at your expense. Typically a title search has to be done before a survey can be completed so that the surveyor knows exactly where to survey. The title search would also be done at your expense unless you decide to go under contract, then it depends on what the contract states.

If in doubt, ask a real estate agent in your area as real estate laws vary from state to state. You can also speak with a title lawyer or real estate lawyer in your area that may be able to provide more insight into your specific issue.

If you need a referral to any one of these in your area, please feel free to contact me.
