Surveying

  • Experience is the best rule to walk by

Tomkinson Group’s qualified Licensed Surveyors offer a full range of survey services, from boundary realignment to multi-lot subdivision.

A Licensed Surveyor is a surveyor authorised to perform cadastral surveys and is the only person legally entitled to undertake a survey to define and mark the boundaries of your property.  Licensed Surveyors in Victoria are registered with the Surveyors Registration Board of Victoria who maintain the register of all licensed surveyors. Land development surveying can take on many forms and licensed surveyors are required whenever any of the following matters require professional attention on your behalf:
  • Determining Exactly Where the Boundaries of Your Property Are
  • Placing Buildings or Structures On or Near Your Property Boundaries
  • Claiming Title to Land Areas Under Adverse Possession
  • Subdividing Your Property or Building
  • Giving Advice on Ownership Rights, Boundary Disputes, Easements, and a multitude of Title Based Questions that can arise
  • Consolidating Titles
  • Dealings Involving Crown Land

Many other professional and construction personnel will offer and perform survey, planning, design and similar services but they are not necessarily Licensed Surveyors.

Across the south-east corner of Australia, when you next require survey services from a land development consultant, or need some form of land development surveying from a reputable and professional company with experienced and fully qualified Surveyors, be sure to contact Tomkinson Group.
