At CADS, we often get enquiries from people who aren’t sure of whether they need a land survey, and what the land surveying process involves. I’m going to try to answer 3 of the most common questions regarding land surveying. If you have any other questions, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you…
Q1. What exactly is a land survey?
Land surveys could also be known as topographical surveys, topo surveys or level surveys and will look like a planametric birds-eye view of the site.
A land surveyor visits site, measuring and recording details of your land and all relevant features on it, then produces a scale drawing in either digital and/or paper copy format.
The end result of a land survey gives Architects, Developers, Authorities or land owners a set of accurate scale drawings, for anything from a single building plot project to a major city redevelopment scheme.
Q2 Do I need a land survey for development work on my house?
An accurate land survey of your grounds or plot will allow an architect or developer to take into account any structures, trees, plants, water features, level changes etc., when drawing up your proposals or designs.
Any of these features could affect design or development work and if they are not accurately recorded you could find yourself shelling out more money later on. Not something I’d advise in these frugal times!
Q3 How much will a land survey cost?
This is dependent upon three simple elements:
All we would normally need from you in order to provide a quotation is a house name or number along with the post code and what the end use of the drawings will be… simple as that!
It may seem an unnecessary outlay, but consider the hassle, stress and additional cost that you could be faced with later on, and invest in a land survey!
