Identification / property surveying solutions
Depending on what State your site is located, identification surveys or property surveys may differ as they have to comply with different legislation.
New South Wales
We conduct Identification Surveys (also called Idents and Property Surveys) throughout Sydney.
This is a survey that identifies existing buildings and improvements on a property. This may be required for a number of reasons, for example, to check whether there are any boundary issues prior to purchasing a property or to settle a boundary fencing dispute with a neighbour.
During the survey we determine the location of buildings on or adjacent to the land and any fences present. We will check for the existence of any Easements, Covenants and Restrictions on land use, and whether or not the subject land complies with the terms of these conditions. We report on any encroachments by or upon the land or upon any Easements. In the instance of a residence the Surveyor will report on the distances of the walls or eaves and gutters from the side boundary of the land.
From Landair Surveys office in East Brisbane we conduct Identification Surveys (also called Idents and Property Surveys) throughout South East Queensland.
This is a survey that identifies and marks existing property boundaries. This may be required for a number of reasons, for example, to build a fence, build a house or garage near a boundary or to settle a boundary fencing dispute with a neighbour.
During the survey we determine the location of the land boundary and mark the boundary corners on the ground.
Afterwards, as required by law, we lodge an Identification Survey plan at the Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM).
