Top Surveyors related questions

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:

  • Are you qualified and RICS accredited?
  • How long have you been doing this kind of surveying?
  • Is the property worth its price? (for land or structural surveyors)
  • What will I need to maintain or repair? (for structural surveyors)
  • What are some issues I need to be aware of?
  • How long will the survey take?
  • How do you manage disputes?

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.

Suggested reads about Surveyors

What do a surveyor's services include?

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

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. 

Structural surveyors

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. 

Party wall surveyors

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

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.
