The property identification surveys indicate the property's boundaries, description, and lot size. The licensed property surveyors first conduct research on the history of the property along with its title based in Perth to make sure the discrepancies are absent as to who is owing to the property. Then, the surveyors conduct a sketch of the particular property, along with its boundaries along with the other essential elements. The sketch is the map detailing the legal boundaries of the property.


The property survey even comprises of the property's written description, the building's location along with the adjacent properties, the street address, and possible improvements to be done to the property.

ii. For Dispute Elimination Over Boundary Lines and Corners of the Land
The survey ensures you have received accurate information related to the prevailing boundary lines and added possession demarcations. Once you have access to all the necessary information, then you can easily make a decision whether you prefer to build up a fence now or later, have a driveway paved or an extra room should be added to the house. Since you know where the boundary lines are, so you can easily avoid future troubles with the neighbors.

iii. In Order To Do Away With Fences and Buildings
Owing to the property surveys, any significant issues related to dividing buildings and fences can be resolved. Erecting a new fence in between the two properties must be located on the boundary lines so each property owner could equally share the maintenance and replacement costs. The property survey helps in marking the boundary lines and ensuring the uncertainty of fence location is absent or to whom it belongs.

iv. To Report On The Underground Cables and Drains
Spotting the wiring above the ground during the inspection is easier, but checking out what is there underneath is not possible. Through the property identification survey the necessary information on the type of electricity, water, gas, drains, telephone, cables, and wires that are there hidden under the property become known. The utility companies might use a proportion of land for line upkeep, and in case it is falling under your home, then they have the right to get it done. Therefore, knowing the location of all the underground utilities before starting off with the construction is indeed a smart idea.

This very section of the property in question determines whether you or your neighbors are having any legal right for walking across each other's properties to reach your own. This section details what must be done with the shared yards or the driveways, or else whether the neighbor is having the right of way to go to the street and alleys in between both of your homes.

The property identification survey done by the property surveyors reveals whether any easements are existing, for instance, for drainage purposes, Covenants, and Restrictions on usage of the land, and whether the subject land and property are complying with the necessary terms and conditions. Even the encumbrances are outlined on the property survey and will bring up the claims and liabilities affecting the property's title.
