Boundary survey is a specialist area of land survey, otherwise referred to as Cadastral surveying. There are many reasons for conducting boundary surveys, these reasons can call for the preparation of:

Transfer Plans

Notifies the Land Registry when a registered estate or part of a registered estate is transferred from one title to another, or where there is a first registration of a newly delineated parcel of land.

Determined Boundary Plans

Notifies the Land Registry of an exact boundary which is subsequently noted on the register of each respective title, its position is subsequently binding on all parties and on anyone who later owns those titles.

Lease plans

Since October 2003, all new leases granted for terms over 7 years or existing leases sold or assigned with 7 years left to run must now be registered with Land Registry, which requires the compilation and submission of a compliant lease plan. If your property was registered before 2002, it is almost certain your plan won’t comply with the current Land Registry guidelines.

Boundary Disputes

Boundary surveys are also an invaluable component in the unfortunate situation of a boundary dispute. Finding yourself in a boundary dispute situation is an unfortunate yet not uncommon position. Brian Gamet specialises in boundary surveys and in helping to resolve boundary dispute situations. However, resolving a boundary dispute is not something that a land surveyor skilled in boundary surveys can do in isolation, and it requires the input of all parties affected. We highly recommend that you give us a call for some free impartial advice on the best way to proceed.

In our opinion the simplest and most effective way to resolving a boundary dispute is through amicable discussion between respective parties, with the aim of finding a mutually agreeable boundary line. We do appreciate that in some circumstances this is not likely to happen, in which case there are legal channels which can be followed. In either circumstance, our specialist boundary surveyors can assist with the process. Including but not limited to:

  • Offering professional advice and opinion based on consultation of relevant conveyance documents and site visits
  • Conducting measured surveys to capture the topographic and boundary detail to gain an overview perspective of the boundaries as they exist today and how they may have existed in the past
  • Acting as a mediator in discussions
  • Professional opinion report preparation
  • Expert witness & single joint expert witness
  • Boundary reports in full compliancy with Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules
