As a landowner, buyer or developer, you need a legal description of the boundaries of a property and for this, you will require accurate measurements of the boundaries to avoid disputes of your land or property, you will have evidence to support your claim.

As a landowner, buyer, or developer, you require precise boundary descriptions and measurements as evidence to prevent land disputes. Cadastral surveys are particularly helpful when determining ownership boundaries, especially if properties share a border. This prevents disagreements and legal costs if one party sells their share. By clearly marking boundary lines, potential conflicts are averted.

Beyond boundaries, cadastral surveys offer insight into property location, encumbrances, and restrictions like easements or building setbacks. This information guides decisions regarding land use and development.

Moreover, these surveys are invaluable when planning construction projects homes or businesses on empty lots within larger residential zones. Incorporating these markers into new structures and submitting plans to local authorities before construction begins saves time and expenses. It also helps eliminate project management challenges in the future. Thus, these Cadastral surveys bring valuable insights into the project’s nature, contributing to efficient planning and execution.

  • Conduct topographic surveys to map the natural and man-made features of a piece of land, including elevation changes, contours, vegetation, streams, slopes, buildings, and infrastructure.
  • We work on land title issues, such as updating property records after a subdivision or other changes to land use.

During our survey for land transfer and subdivision in Auckland, we meticulously cross-reference adjoining property maps, county and utility maps, survey records, and legal documents to define property boundaries.
