A professional boundary survey is a crucial piece of documentation when it comes to establishing a legal agreement or resolving boundary disputes. As a leading building and land surveying firm, Cloud-Conversion has experienced boundary surveyor experts ready to help you effectively demarcate property boundaries. This service is ideal if you are having boundary dispute issues. It is also useful for addressing problems before applying for Planning Permission to embark upon a construction project.
What Defines a Boundary?
A boundary is a line between parcels of land owned by different parties. Boundaries are created when a landowner divides their land into smaller pieces (called parcels) and sells the smaller parcel(s). The landowner defines the new boundaries before the point of sale; these feature in the title deed for each new parcel of land.
Legal boundaries and physical boundaries may not always be one and the same; a physical boundary such as a fence or wall could be different from a legal boundary, which can be invisible. However, the creation of physical boundaries between neighbours can be helpful. According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS, 2018): “it is important to ensure that you and your neighbour understand and agree where the boundary is. It may well save problems in the future if you take steps to erect an appropriate boundary feature” in prior agreement with your neighbour.
What is a Boundary Survey?
A boundary survey becomes relevant when ambiguities emerge in existing documents detailing boundaries. Such ambiguities mean property boundaries are up for interpretation. As Land Registry and Ordnance Survey (OS) maps are rarely detailed enough to resolve such problems, a professional boundary survey is often required. In this case, you will need professional advice from a chartered land surveyor to help you establish where your boundaries. A surveyor can give you more information on what may be open to dispute based on stringent evidence.
