We provide a number of services to home owners, the most common are described below, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team to discuss your requirements.
Topographical/Architectural Site Survey
This is a high definition survey of the features and contour of a site, typically we would produce a plan showing trees, driplines, houses, neighbouring buildings, services, spot heights, contours, legal boundaries etc.
GPS or global positioning system is a survey measurement tool that utilises radio signals from orbiting satellites to obtain 3D positions. BCL Surveyors utilise survey grade Leica GPS systems.
When land is being divided the process is called subdivision, this process will involve a number of different types of surveys including a Land Transfer survey, it may also involve other professionals such as engineers, arborists and architects. Consent from Council is required for a subdivision.
Cross Lease Conversion to Freehold
This involves a subdivision of the property to create freehold titles.
Cross Lease Update/Rectification Survey
Cross Lease restrictive covenant and lease areas are usually defined by buildings footprints, if the building footprint changes then a update or rectification survey is required to update the cross lease areas.
Boundary Relocation/Adjustment Survey
When moving the boundary between neighbouring properties a simplified subdivision process is followed to legalise the boundary adjustment.
Our survey team will redefine your section by pegging the corners of the site. Pegs can also be placed along the line of any boundary or offset from any boundary line if required. Talk to our surveyors to discuss your specific requirements.
Height to boundary checks and Certification
Councils often require a Registered Professional Surveyor to check that buildings comply with their height to boundary, maximum height and yard requirements, a certification is issued if possible upon completion of this type of survey.
