What does a property survey cost?
Depending on the size of your property and project and availability of historical data survey costs can vary greatly. We provide an estimate of survey costs at the start of a project.
When will I need a topographical survey?
Most land development and subdivision projects require a topographical or "topo" survey which will detail the land contour and any other features on the land. The electronic data provided by a topo survey is then used by a number of other disciplines who design the development - including other disciplines such as geotechnical investigations, infrastructure design, ecological reports, archaeological reports, architectural design and landscaping reports.
Is my boundary in the right place?
Quite often your boundary isn't where it appears to be! Our land surveyors are available to fix the position of your boundary.
Do I need a land surveyor?
If you are subdividing, Licensed or Registered Professional Surveyors are required to undertake the legal definition of a new land parcel for the purposes of creating new titles. This is a core part of the services we provide. Land surveyors also undertake a wide range of other survey work required as an integral part of a development project.
