Known as a NSW Identification Survey, VIC Title Re-establishment survey or QLD Location Certificate, a Boundary Survey is performed by a licensed Cadastral Surveyor and is critical in determining the locations of fences, improvements, and encroachments on a parcel of land in relation to its legal title boundaries.
Boundary surveys for your property.
A boundary survey is the surest method to give you peace of mind on your investment. A boundary identification survey will identify encroachments by or upon the parcel of land which you are intending to purchase or build on.
Typically a boundary survey, survey plan and its accompanying surveyor’s report will include the following:
- The general identity & area of the land.
- The general identity of the improvements.
- Any encroachments by buildings or other occupations.
- The position of buildings relative to title boundaries.
- The general position & type of fencing.
- Any easements benefiting the property or to which it may be subject.
- Notation of the existence of any Covenants, Restrictions and Leases to which the land and the Title may be subject.
- Any other matters disclosed by survey, or by the Surveyor’s investigation, which may affect the property.
All plans and computations are completed by an experienced surveyor with cadastral endorsement. Cadastral surveyors are are licensed or registered in your relevant state’s jurisdiction. Land titles office terminology and requirements vary around the country, but our teams are equipped with the local knowledge required to assist you with your survey needs.

- Do you need a full or part boundary survey?
- What is the size and location of your property?
- What time frame do you require the works to be completed in?
- Do you need the boundary marked on site and if so, when?
- Are you building a new fence, building or structure on or near your boundary?
