Boundary Surveying

Boundary Surveyor Sunshine Coast

Surveying For Property Boundaries

If you are looking to build a retaining wall, a fence or make any alterations to your property that could impact a neighbour’s property then it is imperative that you enlist the services of a surveying company to ensure you are working within the correct property boundaries.

This is the only precise way to determine your exact borderlines and ensure you are not encroaching onto another plot of land, which can lead to legal expenses and costly relocation jobs down the track.

Boundary Surveying Services

Our topographic survey plans are prepared using the latest surveying technology and produced by analyzing and processing the data using the most up-to-date CAD software programs. We employ the latest technologies, including 3D laser scanners and drones to deliver the most precise results. Our services are available for a range of projects, including:

Subdivision and Boundary Realignment Surveys

Boundary alignments are reasonably common and may be required to address land management issues or resolve a problem where the lot of one property owner has begun to reach into the neighbouring property. It is also a fairly common modern practice to subdivide parcels of land in order to maximise the space and construct multiple properties.

In either case, boundary surveyor services are required to ensure the proper border measurements are recorded. This step should take place before any development applications are submitted to the council.

Easements & Covenants

There are situations where there is a parcel of land that might be on your property, but others who do not own the land need to access it – and vice versa. These are called easements and having the correct boundary plans is essential.

Parts of your land may be subject to legally-binding covenants that provide rules on how you can or cannot develop that land. In both cases, our high-quality boundary surveyor services will ensure the correct boundaries are established.

Level and Detail Surveys

When you are looking to make changes to your land that requires a development application, you will need level and detail surveys that provide the topographic and contour details of the land in question.

These are typically required for architectural designs, renovations and extensions, property evaluations or when you need to assess and potentially modify drainage solutions.

What’s Involved With Boundary Surveying?

During this process, the land will be comprehensively mapped and measured using the latest technologies before it is compared against historical records for any changes or discrepancies. It involves thorough research and then fieldwork to examine the land, reconciling all the information to provide conclusive border lines.

Boundary Realignment Surveys

If you own multiple, adjoining lots and want to adjust the boundary lines, this service will realign the common boundary or boundaries. It is effectively the same as subdivision and the end result must include the same number of lots, without creating new ones. This process can also be used to resolve boundary disputes when one property owner is encroaching on another, for example through a fence line, tree or another object.
