Peace-of-mind, Security, Expertise

Whether you are a homeowner making improvements to your property, a professional involved in a multifaceted development, or a manager in public service managing assets and natural resources, you want the security, expertise, and peace of mind that consulting a professional surveyor provides.

If you want to know where, when, what or how, how high, how big, or how far, then you need an expert in surveying to maximize your benefits.

Yes, but why do I need a professional surveyor? If you are a homeowner, homebuyer, lawyer, loans officer, property developer, architect, or engineer, read on.

Your home is one of the most important investments you will make. A professional surveyor gives you the information you need to protect that investment whether you are purchasing, selling, building, making improvements, or resolving a boundary dispute with a neighbour.

A professional surveyor will tailor a product specifically to your needs, large or small, and give you peace of mind whatever your plans. From locating and marking a specific boundary to a full Surveyor’s Real Property Report, get the information you need to make the right decision for you.

When you buy or sell, know exactly where your boundaries are and where all major features (e.g. buildings, driveways, fences, pools, sheds, and walkways) are in relation to those boundaries. Know if there are any easements, utilities, or rights of way that will affect your use of the property now or your plans for the future.

If you are investing in improvements such as fencing, landscaping, an addition, or a pool, make sure it’s on your property and within allowable setbacks.

If you have a shoreline or wetland on your property, make sure you know where the limits are and how they affect your use of the surrounding area.

Consult a professional surveyor and invest wisely from the start.

Location, location, location, means more than just the address. Your client needs a current survey of the property to understand what they are investing in.

Location of the property boundaries: It is not always where the fence or hedge would indicate.

Location of buildings, fences, driveway, and other improvements: They should be on the property and within allowable setbacks.

Location or existence of restrictions to the property: You want to know if utilities, easements, access issues, or other encumbrances affect the property.

Recommend a survey and protect your client’s investment.

Whether involved in residential or commercial property, new development or established property, your client may need a survey for a variety of circumstances.

Your client may:

  • be having a boundary dispute with a neighbour;
  • be at risk in selling or buying property because the boundaries are not clear or well defined; or
  • need a mortgage and the financial company requires up-to-date information about the property.

A professional surveyor will tailor a product to your client’s needs, from locating and marking a specific boundary to a full Surveyor’s Real Property Report, which details all boundaries, dimensions, improvements, setbacks, encroachments or encumbrances, and current title information of their property.

Get the peace of mind you and your client need from a fellow professional guided by solid education, experience, standards and ethics.

In order to assess your client’s property you need reliable, current information. A professional surveyor will provide a Real Property Report or Mortgage Certificate that includes a visual and/or written representation of all boundaries, dimensions, improvements, setbacks, encroachments or encumbrances, and current title information of the property.

Consult a professional surveyor and know exactly what your client’s investment is based upon.

A professional surveyor will prove to be a valuable part of your team from the outset of your project. A surveyor will ensure you have the information you need to develop the property to your specifications. Accurate boundary and title information lets you know the precise size, shape and location of the property itself and any easements or encumbrances that will affect your plans. Current topographic information is essential for the engineers and architects on your team.

Many surveyors have expertise in project management, urban planning, subdivision design, drainage design, and other areas relevant to your project. Surveyors are also often part of multi-discipline firms or have access to teams of other experts that will meet your development needs.

You need information about the property you are designing for. Not only the accurate boundary information including size, shape and location; but also current topography including existing buildings, services, grades and drainage; information about easements, zoning and by-law restrictions related to height or setbacks; and proximity of improvements on neighbouring parcels. Have all of this information at your fingertips to inform your work from design through construction to completion.

Hire a professional surveyor and ensure you have all the information you need.

Your newest design is about to become reality and you need precise, accurate information about the property involved. From the start of your project, a professional surveyor will provide the size, shape, and location of the property; the current topography including existing buildings, services, grades and drainage; information about easements, zoning and by-law restrictions related to height or setbacks; and proximity of improvements on neighbouring parcels. During construction, a professional surveyor will provide timely and accurate layout, progress quantities, and final as-built information.

Whether your design is a single building or a multi-phase development; residential, commercial or industrial; urban, rural, remote or offshore location; work with a professional surveyor to ensure you have all the information you need.
