Our team can create a lettable area survey plan that is measured in accordance with the Property Council of Australia’s method of measurement guidelines to suit retail, commercial or industrial properties. From an accurately measured survey of a floor space we generate Lettable Area Plans to assist with rental calculations, property valuations, and lease documentation.

Lettable Area Surveys for rental calculations and more

A lettable area survey is a measured survey of a floor space for leasing purposes. Lettable area surveys are often used to assist with rental calculations, property valuation, and lease documentation.


Receiving a lettable area survey from an experienced surveying company is essential to receiving accurate lettable areas to safeguard the interests of both tenants and owners.


A small miscalculation in the NLA (Net Lettable Area) or GLA (Gross Lettable Area) of a property can have significant negative impact when multiplied over the course of a 10 or 20 year lease.
