LEGAL (CADASTRAL) SURVEYS
Cadastral surveying refers to the legal boundaries of existing and newly created units of land suitable to define and meet requirements for definition of the parcel limits.
In general there are two common types of cadastral surveys:
- a boundary only survey referred to as a Reference Plan or R-Plan, is used to graphically define the legal limits of the land parcel, and show any existing easements or right-of-ways .
- a survey which shows the improvements to or structures on a parcel of land, which would include dwellings, garages, out-buildings, swimming pools, easements (both registered and non-registered), fences, hedges, etc., is referred to as a Surveyor’s Real Property Report (or SRPR).
The control survey established the position of specific points which will serve as a skeleton for locating the details of objects and physical features of the subject property.
On a topographic plan, spot elevations or contour lines are typically shown to help indicate the three dimensional aspect of the property.
The process of land surveying is long and complicated. It involves a great deal of research, specialized equipment, technical and professional knowledge to produce the end product.
A Survey From Start to Finish
Although research can be very time consuming and disbursements quite costly, research is very necessary in order that the survey be accurately and properly completed.
Information is measured and recorded both manually and electronically on the property using specialized survey equipment. (eg Total station, GPS Receiver, etc)
Revisions are common before the final presentation format of the survey plan is complete.
Reporting includes delivering to the client official copies of the plans, a reporting letter indicating any concerns the surveyor may have with regard to the subject property, a final invoice, and possibly a meeting with the client to discuss any concerns with the survey of their property.
