BOUNDARY IDENTIFICATION SURVEYS

WHY YOU MAY NEED A BOUNDARY SURVEY

BOUNDARY IDENTIFICATION SURVEY:

The primary reason for having a boundary identification survey carried out is to alleviate doubt of boundary location. Under normal circumstances your exact boundary location may not be an issue, but if you or your neighbour decides to do major landscaping, renovations or other home improvements, your boundaries may be cause for concern.

Boundary Identification Surveys have a high degree of accuracy & establish the true position of your boundaries in relation to neighboring properties.  Pegs are placed on the ground to show exact boundary locations. Do not confuse these surveys with contour plans or site plans.

They require 2 site visits and a detailed specific type of plan that is lodged into the Titles Office and becomes a public record.

A boundary identification survey may be required if;

  • Neighbors are in dispute over fence location.

  • You plan to build on or very close to the boundary.

  • You want to erect a new high value boundary fence.

  • There is a retaining wall on or near your boundary and it begins to collapse.

  • If there has not been any recent surveys nearby

  • You want to add an extension close to the perceived boundary.

  • If your dispute goes to a tribunal such as QCAT you will definitely need a full boundary identification survey.

 

Benefits:

  • Provides an accurate guide for your builder.

  • Establishes where exactly your boundary is, [note - fences are often not on the true boundary].

  • May help the parties to determine who is responsible for the retaining wall, or if it encroaches on or endangers your property.

  • A boundary survey will identify any encroachments.

 

Please Note: Some boundary surveys can be very difficult and time consuming if there have been no recent surveys. Prices may vary as some areas may not have been surveyed for many decades. We always strive to give you honest straight forward advice and guidance.
