Top Land Surveyor related questions
Usually, a land survey is valid for 5 to 10 years, and the land surveyor you hired is only liable for this same period. If it’s been a while since you had your last survey, it’s recommended that you request an updated one.
Usually, a land surveyor looks at topographical features, natural and artificial boundaries, the specific locations of various structures, and even utilities like pipes and wires. These help you determine the boundaries of your land, how you could use it, and what you should expect from any improvements you plan on constructing. Also, the land surveyor’s report will be helpful when trying to get a mortgage.
If you intend to build on a parcel of land, an existing conditions survey or a construction survey would typically be the most useful. If you simply want to know the boundaries, however, a boundary survey may be sufficient. Not sure about the kind of survey you need? Simply put your goals in your task post and say that you’d want to consult first with a local land surveyor.
A land survey tells you about the land you have - its boundaries, features like slopes or creeks, if utility lines are running through it, and the details of structures on or near it. These elements could affect how you use the property. If you plan on selling it, the report may also dictate how to market this parcel of land to your clients.
It depends on who asks for the survey! If you’re a seller who wants to know more about the land before selling it, you can certainly request a survey - and pay for it - yourself. Usually, though, it may fall on the buyer to do their due diligence before purchasing land. And this due diligence includes requesting the services of a local land surveyor.
When selling land, you don’t need to have a survey. But if you’re the one buying the land, you may need to hire a land surveyor. This is because your bank may ask for a survey before signing off on your mortgage or loan. So unless you’re paying in cash, don’t need financing, and are confident in buying land without doing some due diligence, you could consider skipping the land survey.
What do land surveyors’ services include?
Land surveys are an essential part of construction sites and real estate projects. They determine boundaries, help settle disputes, and help you (and your neighbours) create maps and other legal documents. A land surveyor usually researches an area using specialised tools, records data, and creates reports and maps. This work is exact and involves laws and regulations, which means that a land surveyor needs to be licensed.
Ideally, they should also be chartered (a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors).
When you hire a land surveyor through Airtasker, you can usually expect them to do the following:
Construction or engineer survey
During this type of land survey, the Tasker typically looks for changes in property lines and checks to see if the location of buildings and roads is precise. You can also expect them to look at the topography and grade of a road.
Lastly, they’ll tell you the necessary depth for the foundations of your building project. If you plan to build, renovate, or develop anything on a plot of land, your local planning authorities will usually request this kind of survey.
Existing conditions survey
An existing conditions survey, also known as a site and context plan, includes the location of existing features such as buildings, vegetation. It also covers the slope of the land, building heights, utilities, road features, and adjoining buildings. If you plan to build near waterways, drainage and sewer infrastructure may be included in the survey.
Boundary or land survey
If you ask for a boundary or land survey, the chartered surveyor proceeds to determine the exact locations of your property lines. This kind is quite common when selling or buying land since banks usually require a survey when getting a loan. Here, a chartered land surveyor maps the topography of the land, the location of existing buildings, and natural or artificial borders (e.g. a river).
Done with your boundary survey and want to mark off the area? You can find local fencing specialists through Airtasker.
A geodetic survey consists of measuring large portions of the earth using satellite and aerial imaging. During this type of survey, the Tasker typically looks at large areas (100 square kilometres or more) and monitors changes before, during, and after construction. Geodetic surveys can help one prepare better designs, avoid problems during construction, and monitor any defects or deformations in your project or nearby structures.
