If you are planning to construct a building or structure on your land, it is best to have the land or ii surveyed as your protection from future litigation and disputes. On the other hand, subjecting a building before buying or moving in helps you get off from future problems. Getting your land or building surveyed by a licensed surveyor also helps in reducing such risks.
Land surveying is important in determining or establishing and reestablishing corners, boundaries, lines and monuments within the piece of land and all are based on available records, historical evidence and on the standard of practice in the area. This survey also helps in identifying defects and problems before constructions or new builds. Depending on your needs, there are several types and kinds of land surveys which include plane table surveying chain surveying, compass surveying and photographic surveying. All these surveying are done by licensed surveyors. Land surveying also helps in having accurate site map which is an important factor in determining where to put the building, the rise as well as the run of the foundation. It is also a tool in identifying significant structures like trees and rock cropping and other structure in the real property. On the other hand, building surveying is for creating and planning of building maintenance as well as for advising architects on the appropriate designs, and for keeping up with the safety standards. Surveyors in NSW always recommend and advise real property and building owners on the safety standards and regulations of the territory as well as the safety of the environment. They act as quality controller, safety analyst and energy specialist for building used as housing or commercial. These surveyors are hired for rendering quality building surveys and ensure occupants and users enjoy the topmost safety standards.

Building quality survey will be able to identify these defects and problems and therefore minimized buyer’s headache after the purchase.
