Guest Blog - From Protect Your Boundaries
Land survey plans are an essential part of our land ownership system – and have been since the GTA was first settled in the mid-1700s. These plans have legal standing – they precisely record and illustrate the official extent of each parcel of land in our city, delineating what belongs to one property versus the next.
A cursory examination of a survey plan reveals a wealth of information about your property in an easy-to-understand format – the location of buildings, fences, sheds, decks, and, in some cases, trees and hedges, all in relation to the boundary (or property line).
It’s essential information for any homeowner who is buying or selling a property, applying for a building permit, embarking on an exterior construction project, or working through a dispute with a neighbour.
