Not a lot is understood about surveying, despite the fact that it is one of the most important parts of any building process. The surveyor is the crucial link between design and construction and you might need a land surveyor for multiple reasons. Here are a few:
You Are Looking To Renovate And Extend Your Home
While planning a home extension, a surveyor must be engaged from the beginning so that the designer has a point to start their design. For your project, you will need a survey of features, grades and property lines to aid in the design process.
You Need To Build A Fence On Your Property
While building a new fence on your property, the best course of action is to request a boundary survey to make sure your property lines are monumented with official survey posts and that they are in their original undisturbed location. If you recently purchased your home, survey posts can become disturbed through various construction processes.
You Are Looking To Subdivide Your Lands
In the same category as a home extension, the process of subdividing your land starts with the existing conditions topographic survey to show to a designer and the city, as well as the current opportunities and any barriers that exist.
You Have A Boundary Dispute With A Neighbour
