Boundary surveys may be required for various reasons:
- There can be a difference between physical boundaries on the ground and legal boundaries that exist in deeds and land registry documents. While solicitors are experts in the legal field, the advice and assistance of professional land surveyors can be invaluable in providing mapping and positional expertise to resolve problems.
- For new developments it is necessary to submit plans to HM Land Registry to register new properties and titles.
- Disputes between neighbors do occur, often over matters unrelated to boundaries. Professional, impartial advice and assistance, early on in the life of a problem, can assist in bringing about a speedier and more cost effective resolution to the issue.
