What is a survey?
The most common survey relating to the purchase and financing of properties is an Identification Survey (or ID Survey). This survey is to determine all the buildings and other structures are on the land being purchased or financed. The survey diagram shows the boundaries and a simple outline of the buildings showing their relationship to the boundaries.
OPR’s licensed and registered surveyors will provide you with confidence in the accuracy of your located property boundaries, buildings and infrastructure. Our surveyors have the experience to efficiently and reliably deal with your survey report needs.
Different types of surveys
- Contour / Detailed - used to locate the elevations of a piece of land and the improvements on, above or under the land.
- Flood Level - Flood level analysis is used as a tool to assist in the final decision on floor levels and building locations.
- Identification - shows if the building/s on the subject land encroaches upon any adjoining property.
- Peg-Outs – the surveyor pegs out the boundaries of the property
- Redefinition - A redefinition survey will check the position of existing pegs and replace the missing ones. It also confirms the property dimensions. A redefinition survey confirms the boundaries for the architect who never appreciates being told the building is too wide for the site at the same time the piling machine gets there. Without a redefinition plan you may need to pay for a redesign, which typically will exceed the cost of a redefinition survey.
- Site Analysis – identifies the positive and negative characteristics of a site and how these constrain a new project. Additionally it will show existing physical features.
- Subdivision Plan – division of a lot into 2 or more lots or redividing 2 or more lots along new boundaries.
