Why You Should Hire a Residential Land Surveyor Prior to Developing a Plot

When it comes to developing a plot, you must always hire a residential land surveyor. There are many reasons for this, which we will explore in this article; but the main purpose is to save you an awful lot of time, stress and money in the long-run.  

Before going ahead and hiring a residential land surveyor, first you must understand their value, and how they can be of great benefit to you. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits now:  

1 – Understanding a plot of land’s topography  

Understanding the topography of a plot of land is essential for best-optimising your construction efforts. A qualified residential surveyor will be able to accurately assess the plot of land in order to account for any potential risks during the construction process. For example: if a plot of land is particularly exposed to strong winds or is prone to flooding, it will be handy to account for this when it comes the plot’s development. Again, this can save you an awful lot of time, stress and money, so it is almost certainly worth your while.  

2 – Avoid boundary disputes  

A residential land surveyor will be able to accurately determine a plot of lands boundaries. This is essential when it comes to building walls or fences around a given plot of land, to avoid encroaching on neighbouring plots. If you want to avoid any boundary disputes (which can be terribly costly and equally as infuriating); then you must build with absolute precision.  

3 – Seamless subdivision  

Particularly if you wish to divide a plot of land into various sections to sell off to other residential or commercial developments; a land surveyor can be incredibly useful. Your dedicated engineers will be able to appropriately divide the plot of land, whilst providing an accurate value for each sub-section. So, when you come to selling off particular areas of the plot you can do so absent any unnecessary issues or inaccuracies. 

4 – Ease of construction  

Naturally, building on a plot of land is a very complicated procedure. – Particularly if you want to get it right the first time and do everything by the book. After accurately mapping a plot, your residential surveyors can advise your construction team on anything that they need to be aware of before proceeding with the project. – Not so dissimilar to the way in which an architect might advise a structural engineer. Simply put: for the best possible results, you must account for every eventuality, – leave ‘no stone unturned’, so to speak.  

5 – Realise the full potential of a given plot  

A residential land surveyor can help you to realise the full potential of the given plot. You will be able to accurately determine the plot’s true value and ultimately make the most informed decisions before going ahead and starting your development projects.
