Where Can I Get a
Digital Land Survey of My Property?
It’s often important to consult an official survey of your
property. One of the most crucial times is when you or a neighbour is building
a fence or other structure close to the property line. It’s good policy to
ensure that no structure encroaches on a neighbour’s property, since
encroachments can make the resale of both homes more difficult and can even
prevent one neighbour from full enjoyment of his/her property.
You might also need a copy of the official land survey if you
plan to go to the bank for refinancing or if you want to challenge the tax
assessment of your property.
Easements and Other
A property survey can also give you a great deal of
information about easements on or under your property. It can display the
location of gas, power and telephone lines, storm drains, sewers, subway
tunnels and other objects that can affect your property. For example, if you
plan to install a backyard swimming pool for your kids, you’ll want to be sure
there are no obstacles to digging.
You may also discover that your property contains a
right-of-way for people who want to access a public road or parking lot.
Obtaining a Copy of
Your Land Survey
You may already have a paper copy of your Surveyor’s Real
Property Report, or SRPR, but, in this digital age, it’s important to have an
accurate electronic copy. Protect Your Boundaries, an organization that
provides access to property surveys for GTA homeowners, is the best agency to
contact. PYB staff will be able to answer all your land survey questions!
