Before you start Creating a space to live in .......
make sure its in the Right place!
Your Surveyor will check your site boundaries for you!
Land surveying is the technique and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes. To accomplish their objective, surveyors use elements of geometry, engineering, trigonometry, mathematics, physics, and law. An alternative definition, is the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points and/or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the Earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points and/or details. Land surveying is the detailed study or inspection, as by gathering information through observations, measurements in the field, questionnaires, or research of legal instruments, and data analysis in the support of planning, designing, and establishing of property boundaries. It involves the re-establishment of cadastral surveys and land boundaries based on documents of record and historical evidence, as well as certifying surveys (as required by statute or local ordinance) of subdivision maps, registered land surveys, judicial surveys, and space delineation. Land surveying can include associated services such as mapping and related data accumulation, construction layout surveys, precision measurements of length, angle, elevation, area, and volume, as well as horizontal and vertical control surveys, and the analysis and utilization of land survey data.
01. TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEYS
A topographic (or tache) survey is used to determine the relative locations of places on the earth’s surface, such as boundaries and buildings, by measuring horizontal distances, differences in elevation and which direction these are facing.
We compose surveys drawings detailing the features and the lay of the land, such as trees, banks, roads, municipal services, contours, levels, building footprints. This serves as a base map to be referred to when working with the design of different types of buildings, either residential or commercial, or when designing roads or driveways.
02. PROPERTY SUBDIVISIONS
Property subdivision can be beneficial in many ways, such as reducing debt for homeowners by disposing of a portion of their land, and thus reducing their bond repayments and property rates. It is also a good way of improving security in a security conscious country, by living in a more confined space, with neighbours close by. We provide all necessary services – from feasibility studies and initial application, to final survey and registration documentation.
- Erf subdivisions
- Farm subdivisions
- Consolidation of properties
03. BOUNDARY PEG RE-ESTABLISHMENT
Boundary peg or beacon relocation is the process of reconstructing the position of the property beacons and boundary. This process is carried out by our registered surveyors and is accompanied with beacon certificates.
Encroachment or boundary dispute surveys detail the extent and possible remedial actions in order to establish the boundary lines.
04. Construction Survey
Survey measurements made prior to or while construction is in progress to control elevation, horizontal position, dimensions, and configuration, i.e. stakeout of line and grade for buildings, fences, roads, etc
05. SECTIONAL TITLE SURVEYS
When someone purchases a sectional title property, they do not purchase just the area that they will be dwelling in, but also a section or portion of shared property that is part of the communal area of a shared property. This usually applies to flats or complexes, where there is a communal pool, clubhouse, mailbox etc. This means that the owner takes responsibility for paying a portion (levy) towards the use of these communal areas under their sectional title.
We undertake the creation (and, subsequently, amendments and extensions) of Sectional Plans and associated documentation for lodgement and approval by the Surveyor General.
