Important for all property owners!

Below are the 7 main reasons why you should have property surveyed prior to purchasing. Doing this is like taking out an insurance policy on your land - after all, your house and land is the single most important purchase you will ever make so it is vital that you protect your interests.


To ensure the land described in the transfer is actually the parcel the purchaser wishes to buy.

Fact - in Sydney 10 Land owners in one street purchased each others properties. Case was in court for many years.

The improvements being transferred are within the boundaries described.

Neighbouring fences & buildings may be over the boundary. Encroachments must be removed or dealt with prior to signing a contract.

There are no unregistered interests such as encroachments or unregistered easements affecting the land.

Fact - one home owner fought to keep her pool and entertaining area that had been built over an easement.

To check that the land is not subject to flooding.

With multiple unprecedented floods in SEQ in recent years this is more important than ever.

To confirm the improvements have been built in accordance with local authority ordinances.

If any hidden surprises arise later, this can be a very costly and stressful endeavor.

To ensure the physical features and services available are adequate for your purposes.

There are specific council regulations that need to be met for different purposes of use. These are not always obvious and should be checked.

Most land boundary dispute arises from people unaware of where their boundaries are located.

The land on the plan is not always the same shown on the Title. Fences do not always depict the property boundary.
