Are you planning to divide your property, carry out any building work or simply sell your property? In any of these circumstances apply to you, then you would benefit from the services of a team of land surveyors to provide you with the needed expertise to ensure that no costly mistakes are made at any point.
What type of survey do you need?
One of the most significant issues with choosing land surveyors is working out what type of survey you might need. If all you are concerned about is establishing the boundaries of your property so that you can put your new fence in the right place, then land surveyors capable of a boundary survey are essential. This type of survey can also be used to resolve boundary disputes with your neighbours, which can often arise when the edges of your property are not clearly marked.
Discovering how the land lies
Another type of survey which you might need to think about is a topographical survey. If you want to clearly identify the contours present on your property, then calling a team of land surveyors and asking them to plan a survey to plot out all of the relevant features can be useful. This type of survey can be used to make sure that you build in the best place on your land and that the property is built of suitable materials for the location. A topographical survey will also highlight features such as trees or manhole covers that might not be included in other types of survey and could present problems during the construction stage of any project.
Are you dividing your land?
The final type of survey that you might ask your land surveyors to undertake is a subdivision survey. When you want to divide your single piece of property into several individual lots, then you will need land surveyors to prepare a survey showing how this will be done. There will need to be both a route plan survey indicating any roads that will need to be built and a 'lot split' survey explaining how you want the property to be divided.
If you know that you will need to have a survey completed on your property but aren't sure exactly what you need then it is best to speak to your land surveyors and explain why you need the survey. They will be able to explain which type of survey could best accomplish your objectives.
