      How long does a Boundary Inspection take?

      On average 1- 4 hours, in this time, the Surveyor undertaking the inspection will be taking both photographic and written records and recording detailed measurements of the property and its boundary.

      For your neighbour to disagree, they will be required to put forth their Surveyor’s opinion or own evidence. Upon receipt of this proof, we advise getting back in touch with us to discuss their response and mediate the differences, which more often than not, leads to a simple resolution.

      Once the Boundary report is complete, assuming the Surveyor’s opinion is in line with yours in relation to the boundary issue.
      We advise presenting the report to the neighbour under dispute and requesting they address the trespass within a reasonable set period.

      If your neighbouring still dispute your Boundary report, you have the final option to proceed to court. The courts may subpoena your Surveyor to inform the court of their findings, at the minimum they will take the Surveyors report into the evidence bundle in support of your case. (this adds substance to your case) The courts have also been known to appoint an external expert, to provide further opinion and ultimately assist in making a judgement.

      Boundary surveying involves determining the exact location and legal boundaries of a property. It helps identify property lines, easements, encroachments, and other relevant boundary-related information.

      A boundary survey is essential for various reasons, including resolving boundary disputes, ensuring property rights and ownership, verifying property dimensions for construction projects, and obtaining accurate property assessments.

      While a boundary survey provides an accurate representation of property lines, it does not guarantee the resolution of disputes with neighbors. However, it provides a crucial piece of evidence to help resolve such disputes through legal processes, negotiations, or mediation.

      It is helpful to provide any existing property surveys, deeds, title documents, or other relevant records during the boundary surveying process. These documents aid in understanding property history and assist the surveyor in making accurate determinations.

      Conducting a boundary survey requires expertise, knowledge of surveying techniques, and access to specialized equipment. It is recommended to hire a qualified and experienced boundary surveyor who can provide accurate and legally defensible results.

      Remember, for specific information and personalized advice tailored to your unique situation, it’s best to consult with a professional boundary surveyor.

      Certainly! Here’s an additional FAQ for boundary surveying potential clients:

It is advisable to request a detailed quote from a professional boundary surveyor, who can provide an accurate cost estimate based on the specific characteristics of your property.

      Remember, each boundary surveying project is unique, and it’s important to consult with a qualified boundary surveyor to assess your specific needs and provide you with the most accurate information regarding timelines, costs, and the scope of the survey.
