Types of Surveys

  1. Building Location
  2. Boundary Survey for Legal Description
  3. Construction
  4. Property Line
  5. Subdivision Plan
  6. GPS
Also known as a Surveyor's Real Property Report (S.R.P.R.). The S.R.P.R. is an as-built survey of new and existing structures. The finished Plan defines and describes the various features with respect to the property limits. (Residential & Commercial). Also included is a written report outlining any points of interest.

To provide a graphic representation of the property limits and the features within the property to interested parties.

For the:
  • Purchaser: Defines features and boundaries and provides peace of mind.
  • Vendor: Provides a graphic illustration of the interests to be sold.
  • Lending Institution: Assesses value.
  • Local Planning & Building Authority: Illustrates conformity with local by-laws and zoning regulations.
Also known as a Reference Plan (R-Plan). R-Plans illustrate existing boundaries or are used to depict the new boundaries of a severance, and deal with title and ownership of land, both private and public. The final Plan of Survey defines the legal limits/boundaries of the property. No structures are shown unless the structure forms part of the boundary.

To provide a description of the existing and newly created parcel of land which can be registered.

For the:
  • Purchaser: Illustrates and defines boundaries.
  • Vendor: Identifies existing and severed lands.
  • Lending Institution: Assesses value.
  • Local Planning & Building Authority: Illustrates conformity with local by-laws and zoning regulations.
Once the legal boundaries of a property have been established, any development or improvement to your property needs to be accurately located and detailed. The 5 phases available include Building Application/Permit, Staking, Pinning, S.R.P.R., and Grading Certificates. Staking provides horizontal and vertical reference for the excavation of the site. Pinning establishes the corners of the foundation and verification of the footing elevation. The S.R.P.R. defines and describes all features within the limits of the property and the Grading Certificate provides verification of the final surface elevations with respect to a pre-engineered grading plan.

To provide horizontal, vertical and legal information to the building industry.

For the:
  • Purchaser: Defines features and boundaries and provides peace of mind.
  • Builder: Positions and defines the location of the new dwelling within the site.
  • Lending Institution: Assesses value.
  • Local Planning & Building Authority: Illustrates conformity with local by-laws and zoning regulations.
Fence Line or Property Line surveys are re-establishment of existing boundaries on the ground. Reference markers are placed at the corners and/or along the boundaries in question. While the boundary is re-established, a Plan of Survey is available upon request.

To provide a physical reference on the ground as to the location of the boundary or boundaries.

For the:
  • Property owner who needs to resolve a dispute, to erect a fence or structure on or near a boundary, or to simply determine the location of a boundary.
Also known as a Registered Plan or M Plan. These Plans provide a means in which to create a large number of lots within a parcel of land in which the boundary of the property has been certified. Once a Plan of Subdivision or M Plan is registered, the original or underlying legal property fabric is extinguished and the new property identification is created. (Residential & Commercial)

To create a large number of properties within the framework and control of the local Planning Authority.

For the:
  • Developer: Creates new properties.
  • Purchaser: Provides a graphic illustration of the interests to be sold.
  • Lending Institution: Assesses value.
  • Local Planing & Building Authority: Illustrates conformity with local by-laws and zoning regulations.
These surveys are conducted on larger projects where precision, time and subsequently cost are factors. The GPS (Global Positioning System) is a more secure and efficient way to measure a vast piece of land. This is especially helpful in heavily wooded and inaccessible tracts of land where we use robotics to produce accurate measurements using satellites.

For:
  • Anyone associated with a larger project.
