What is a Land Boundary Survey?

Boundary surveys are most commonly used to determine the legal ownership of a specified plot of land and often form part of a legal document (Land Registry) or lease agreement.

In most cases, a boundary survey or property line survey is required when there is disagreement among two or more parties regarding who owns or occupies how much of a boundary. It is useful to have a boundary survey and a proper analysis done in order to establish the facts in order to assist in settlement of these disputes in a calm and professional manner.


What’s included in our Land Boundary Surveys? 

  • Defining the position of undefined boundaries.
  • An excellent resource for resolving boundary disputes using high-quality data.
  • Providing expert witness advice upon request.
  • Plan comparison service provided by HM Land Registry.

Our land boundary surveys can be overlaid on Land Registry or historical maps in order to determine any discrepancies to help resolve any disputes or to record new titles with Land Registry/Councils

Boundary Surveys are produced on site using our Leica Total Stations and related to Ordnance Survey via GNSS site equipment. Our survey data is integrated with the Ordnance Survey Map, which allows you to relate your site to its surroundings making our boundary survey drawings Land Registry compliant.

Q. What is the purpose of a boundary survey?

  1. Whenever two or more parties disagree about who owns or occupies a certain boundary, a boundary survey or property line survey is required.


Q. How much does a boundary survey cost?

  1. A land boundary survey can vary depending on the complexity of the job and where it uses a computer-aided software system. If you would like any further information, please get in touch for an exact quote.


Q.  What is the difference between a survey and a boundary survey?

  1. Location drawings are the most basic type of land survey. The surveyor will come out to our property and prepare a drawing that shows the boundaries of your property and shows the structures that are located on our property. Boundary line surveys are more accurate. Measurements are taken, including metes and bounds.
