BOUNDARY IDENTIFICATION SURVEY
In Qld, a boundary Identification Survey is where a Registered Cadastral Surveyor reinstates and remarks the existing legal title boundaries of a property. The survey would show any structures that may be visibly encroaching over the boundaries.
You should obtain a boundary identification survey, when:
Finding your boundary locations:
Knowing where your property boundaries lie, is critical. Existing fences or even existing boundary pegs or stakes do not necessarily represent the location of your boundary. Unless you have had the boundaries surveyed by a Qld Registered Cadastral Surveyor (through the QLD Surveyors Board), there is a real chance of disaster.
Put yourself in this position, you have just: purchased the entirely wrong block of land; purchased a house and land that encroaches onto adjoining land; built a house or an extension over the boundary or the new shed is sitting over your neighbors land. These things happen more frequently than you would think.
