Understanding Boundary Repeg issues can be a real challenge that raises more questions than answers
Where are my boundaries?
How close can I build to an existing fence?
My neighbour removed the old fence and put the new fence up in a different location… is it in the correct location?
Is the retaining wall on my boundary – whose responsible for repairs to the wall?
The location of property boundaries is critical to the use and enjoyment of your land. Don’t risk replacing a fence or building a new house or extension until you know exactly where your property boundaries are.
A boundary or re-peg survey is a fraction of the total cost of constructing a fence or retaining wall. It is less than 1% of the total cost of building a standard residential dwelling.
So, why would you take the risk with not using a Licensed Surveyor to determine your property boundaries before you start your project?
In Western Australia only a Licensed Surveyor with a current practising certificate is authorised to legally define your property boundaries.
If you use a person that is not a certified Licensed Surveyor with a current practising certificate (as noted on the public register) then that person is liable for a $10,000 fine and your survey will have no legal status if there is a boundary dispute in the future.
Our Licensed Surveyors have worked across numerous sectors with a combined experience of over 25 years. We have seen and addressed almost every boundary issue…
