What is a Boundary Identification Survey?

A boundary identification survey, also known as a property boundary survey or a cadastral boundary survey, determines the exact location of a property boundary and the extents of ownership or title.

These surveys are crucial for anyone looking to buy, sell, renovate, build, develop, or simply ascertain the extents of their property. A boundary identification survey plan serves as a legal document to settle disputes, plan developments, or establish land ownership with traceable accuracy.
