Having your boundary surveyed will include necessary research and observing physical evidence on site. Property corners will be marked with Survey Markers and a plan of survey will be made and filed with province's Land Registry. A boundary survey makes certain your properties extents are well defined, and is often used for building fences, resolving boundary disputes, new construction work, or transfer of the property.
A Surveyor's Location Certificate shows structures on a property in relation to the boundary of the lot. Often required by lenders to confirm that a property is free of encroachments. Also required by municipalities for permitting to show the location of proposed new construction. This helps guarantee the structure is following necessary zoning regulations regarding placement on the lot. For new construction we can also set stakes on site for the proposed building location.
We can provide subdivision services to split an existing property into two or more lots. We establish the new boundary or boundaries, and set Survey Markers, and produce a subdivision plan. Subdividing is a multi stage process that involves your municipalities zoning and subdivision bylaws, an approval process and registration of the approved subdivision with the Land Registry.
An easement is a legal right to utilize another's land for a given purpose, such as access to one's land or to service utilities. Since an easement can greatly affect your rights to use your property, it is important to have it well defined and located, and marked for the benefit of both parties.
