Our cadastral surveys include identification surveys and title re-establishment surveys to determine the position of fencing or occupation to title boundaries required for due diligence and design. Cadastral surveying provides a sharp focus on the laws of land ownership and the definition of property boundaries.
Cadastral surveys for commercial property.
Cadastral Surveying is a type of Land Surveying that deal with the establishment of real property boundaries. Our range of Cadastral Survey services include surveys to create new property boundaries, sub-division surveys, or surveys for due diligence and design to precisely identify boundaries and the location of any improvements thereon these are known as Identification surveys or Title Re-establishment surveys.
Cadastral surveying provides a sharp focus on the laws of land ownership and the definition of property boundaries. It involves interpreting and advising on boundary locations, on the status of land ownership and on the rights, restrictions and interests in property, as well as the recording of such information for use on plans, maps, etc. It also involves the physical delineation of property boundaries and determination of dimensions, areas and certain rights associated with properties, whether they are on land, water or defined by natural or artificial features.
The government and community entrust licensed or registered surveyors to maintain and protect the integrity of the cadastre, which underpins economic development through confidence in the property market. The only person that is authorised to perform cadastral surveys is a licensed surveyor. The regulation of cadastral surveying reflects the importance with which Government holds cadastre. The cadastre is a parcel-based system of property (land) administration. It is comprised of physically delineated boundaries, being the extents of parcels or interests in parcels, and datasets containing the public record of the interests (ie. rights, restrictions and responsibilities) in those parcels.
Our cadastral data will show you the exact boundaries and ownership of land and buildings. You will be provided with an accurate recording of the boundaries. Our surveyors provide precise and accurate surveys by;
- Marking of boundaries for new fencing or building work.
- Checking for building encroachment issues.
- Resolving disputed property boundaries.
- Confirming the ownership of trees on and beside property boundaries.
Our typical process
We utilise the latest surveying technology to capture our data then produce our cadastral survey plans. Using the latest CAD software programs everything is captured and processed accurately to start producing our cadastral survey plans. The equipment we use is state of the art, ranging from traditional total stations to 3D laser scanning or RPA (drone). We only use the latest software tools including AutoCAD & Revit.
Once our plans are drafted they go through an intensive QA process via an independent audit to ensure that what we have captured is delivered to the highest levels of accuracy possible.
- Initial consultation to ensure we can meet your needs.
- Agree on a scope of work.
- A site visit is organised with one of our qualified technicians with the necessary data collection equipment.
- All data is then processed via our team located in one of our offices around the Country.
- All plans or drawings are then independently reviewed via our QA process.
- All deliverables are then created for viewing in PDF, AutoCAD or Revit.
- We also have the ability to create a 3D scan or virtual tour of your property to create a fully interactive view of a site.
