This depends on what you're having surveyed. During a land survey, the Tasker generally takes a lot of measurements and documents any notable land features that can help mark out your property and its boundaries. However, during a structural survey, you can expect the Tasker to look for things that need to be repaired or maintained, such as an unstable wall or rising damp.
Some of the questions to ask a surveyor include:
Usually, a property surveyor checks for damp by looking at walls and floors. They may also use a moisture meter to see if any part of the structure is holding more water than is safe. A surveyor may also be able to tell you if the kind of damp you have is rising damp (from water seeping in from the ground to the walls), penetrating damp (from the rain seeping into your house), or condensation.
Usually, the land surveyor starts by getting the initial survey of the land from your local authority. Then, they'll use special equipment to get the exact dimensions from different points in your property. The land surveyor will generally bury stakes or use spray paint to establish a boundary. These boundaries will be mapped and put in a report that you can use for purposes like getting a bank loan or starting a construction project.
First, you'll need to compare the survey you have with your neighbour's and compare the legal descriptions. Next, contact your surveyor and ask them to explain the discrepancies in the two documents. These may be caused by markers that have been moved or altered over time. Or markers in the wrong position or have disappeared. This may call for a revised survey. You might also consider talking to a lawyer to help you resolve the dispute.
This may vary depending on your local fence laws and regulations. Still, homeowners are usually allowed to build a fence as long as its outermost portion is against the boundary - but not over it. A surveyor or local fencing specialist may be able to help you determine the best place to position your new fence.
When you hire a local independent surveyor through Airtasker, it typically includes the following: taking note of land features, measuring distances and angles, going through land records and titles, preparing maps and reports, and establishing official boundaries for any legal documents. To do this, a surveyor typically uses special technology such as GPS (Global Positioning System) and GIS (Geographic Information System).
Airtasker also makes it easy to find chartered surveyors near you. This specialist ideally has decades of experience in the field and has attained professional membership at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). There are different kinds of surveyors for various needs. Some of the specialists you can find on our platform include:
Land surveyors help you determine the boundaries and exact locations of any land or real estate you intend to buy. Getting a survey before hiring an architect or builders ensures that you don't encroach on your neighbour's property during construction and use. In general, a land surveyor can also do a valuation of the property for tax, mortgage, settlement, or sales purposes.
These are specialists in the realm of structural issues. Whether you're buying or selling a building or home, it's essential to know if there are any defects, the extent of these defects, and how to repair them. These include looking at brickwork, woodwork, the roof, windows, walls, ceilings, and immediate ground.
A local structural surveyor is usually familiar with the codes and regulations in your area so that they can help you keep your building safe for use. Just like land surveyors, a structural surveyor is typically able to provide a valuation of the building.
This kind of surveyor specialises in resolving disputes involving neighbouring properties. They make sure that all parties are in compliance with the Party Wall Act, regardless of who hired them.
Quantity surveyors differ slightly from the other kinds of specialists because they manage contracts and finances during a construction project. They are also charged with ensuring that a project finishes on time while still meeting legal and quality standards. Taskers like these can make your construction process smoother and more efficient.

Hello, Below outlines my predicament:. I am not really sure what I should be paying for this so I have put in an estimate only. 5- The non-habitable attic space has a ceiling height of approx 2010 mm. The minimum required height is 2100 mm. As this cannot be changed, we consider the most appropriate course of action would be to apply for a Modification via the Building Appeals Boards. Information can be found on the VBA website 6- The bottom riser of the internal stair measures approx 195mm. This exceeds the maximum allowable 190mm AND the variation to the next riser also exceeds the maximum allowable 5mm. There are 2 options; a) Reconfigure the stairs to achieve compliance (this may not be straightforward given the current discrepancy) b) Apply for a Modification via the Building Appeals Board

We are having a fence put up next week and need a land surveyor to come to the property and tell us where the original fence was and what needs to be moved in order to get the fence up. The neighbour whose property it bordered has cut down portions of the fence and excavated where it was so there is some confusion. Also looking for someone to be there on the day (8th of October) to ensure fence is placed in correct place. We have surveyor reports that show the original fence line.
