A SRPR is an as-built survey of new and existing structures detailing the boundaries of the property and any rights of ways, encroachments or easements that may affect your property. Included with a SRPR is a drawing and a written report outlining any points of interest in regards to your property. A SRPR is most commonly needed when buying or selling a property or when trying to settle a boundary dispute.
A Topographic Survey is a document prepared from field data that defines the horizontal and vertical position of surface and obvious underground features in and around a subject property. A topographic plan can be used by the architect and/or engineer to complete lot grading, site servicing and/or storm water management design for the property.
A Lot Grading Plan is a preconstruction design document required prior to issuance of a building permit that precisely defines the horizontal and vertical positioning of proposed structures and other improvements on a property. This allows the municipality to confirm the suitability of the proposed grading and drainage patterns after construction and provides a guideline document to verify the conformance of construction while in progress, and when completed.
A Reference Plan (R-Plan) illustrates existing boundaries or can be used to depict new boundaries created by severance. The final Plan of Survey defines the legal limits and/or boundaries of the property and is deposited in the local Land Registry Office.
Boundary surveys are essential if you are planning to begin any construction work within your property limits. This could include projects like building a fence, a retaining wall, deck or even a house. By making sure you are building on your own property, and by respecting the setback requirements of your local municipality, you can properly protect your investment.
An M-Plan is used to create a large number of lots within a parcel of land in which the boundary of the property has been certified. Once an M-Plan is registered the original property fabric is replaced by the new property identification information.
Storm Water Management design defines the method of drainage collection and control, including both rate and quality control, and ensures that released drainage does not damage private or municipal property, minimizes or eliminates flooding or impacts to the groundwater table or downstream drainage systems, prevents erosion or pollution, and does not negatively impact aquatic life or habitat. Storm Water Management requirements are often site-specific depending on the watershed, approval authority’s specifications and the methods of storm drainage controls proposed.
