Completing a Title Survey on your property is the process of marking out boundaries on the ground as per your Title Plan. This Title Plan can be found on your Certificate of Title which describes the rights the interested party has on their land. Title Surveys are also known as Re-Establishment Surveys, Boundary Surveys, Relocation Surveys or Check Surveys.
When do I need to do one?
There are a number of situations where it is appropriate to carry out a Title Survey for your property. These include:
Before purchasing any new property
Getting a clear guideline of the boundaries of your property is always important. It is especially important in helping you grasp the level rights you have over the property. Purchasing after you and the seller have settled on the boundaries is the recommended course of action. As both parties understand the rights, it helps mini minimise the risk of any future disputes over the boundaries of your land.
During the planning stages of land development
As land development is a big financial investment, it is always best to ensure you know the boundaries of the property clearly before you start planning. This helps minimise the risk of any fencing disputes after the development and as a result any financial burdens resulting from the dispute.
In the process of settling any fencing disputes
If you are facing a fencing dispute with your neighbour, the best way to determine the boundary rights of each party is to complete a Re-establishment Survey. Re-establishment Surveys are accurate and can be used as a legally binding document. This means it has the final say in the land rights of each property owner involved in the dispute.
When planning to build close to your boundaries
You may be planning a project on your land that requires you to build very close to the boundary. It is best to do a title survey before you start building in these cases. This helps you ensure that you are staying within the boundaries of your property. Again, this process helps in risk minimisation especially the of having to demolish later on.
