Your Trusted Partner for Boundary Surveys and Land Development in South Australia

Boundary identification or re-identification surveys are essential prior to any residential construction, commercial or land development.  Whether you’re planning a residential house extension, building a fence or shed, disputing a neighbour’s boundary or planning for a large-scale construction project, a boundary identification survey will give you the clarity and confidence you need, avoiding any potentially expensive problems later.

Whether you’re an architect, builder, developer or home owner, if you’re planning on developing a site your first priority may be to confirm where the boundaries of your site are.  Our cadastral professionals can provide you with a Boundary Identification Survey and physically peg offsets to your boundary, or advise on land development proposals such as land divisions, amalgamations and easements.

Easement surveys

When a service or rights of access is required over an adjoining parcel of land, a Plan for Easement is lodged at the Lands Titles Office with the necessary documentation from the conveyancer.  Services could include stormwater pipes, electricity cables, water pipes or telecommunication cables.

Strata title amendments

Amendments are required to the old system Strata Plans to enable corrections to the titles such as when new structures are erected, yards are modified or carparks are renumbered.

Amalgamation plans

The joining of two titles into one requires a Plan of Amalgamation.  This can be advantageous to reduce rates and taxes but careful consideration of the consequences is advisable.  We can advise you and prepare the necessary plans to be lodged at the Lands Title Office.

Boundary re-alignments (land division)

To re-align or adjust the boundaries between two properties is considered a Land Division and requires all the same processes and timeframes as dividing a parcel of land into two titles.

Road closing surveys

Closing a portion of road reserve is a very complex process and can take a considerable amount of time.  Once the portion of road is closed it can be amalgamated with your title and enjoy the benefits of the extra land.

Lease areas and plans

When a portion of title is to be leased, it may be necessary to register the lease for protection of your legal interests.  A Lease Plan will be required to be lodged at the Lands Titles Office for lease registration purposes.  We can also provide lease areas by following the Property Council of Australia guidelines for lease calculations.
