The determination of property boundaries is a core skill of the Licensed Surveyor, and our Licensed Surveyors are capable and experienced in the undertaking of Boundary Identification Surveys. Known colloquially as “Idents’ within the surveying profession, a Boundary Identification Survey involves the surveyor taking measurements to existing registered survey marks and other boundary evidence, and calculating the position of the boundaries of a land parcel. The boundaries are then usually marked with pegs or offset nails or pins, and a plan is prepared showing the relationship between the survey marks and fences and the boundaries. The plan will be certified by one of our Licensed Surveyors. A Boundary Identification Survey is often necessary when building is about to commence on a property, or if new fences or major structures are to be built on or adjacent to a boundary line. Engaging Sawley Lock O’Callaghan to undertake your Boundary Identification Survey will reduce the risk of future disputes about the position of your boundary and any structures that you build near the boundary.
