Get Your Property Surveyed
New Surveyor’s Real Property Report (SRPR). Do you need a new survey plan of your property? Your best option is to commission a Surveyor’s Real Property Report (SRPR). The SRPR provides a plan of your property based on current title information and a fully researched assessment of your property limits.
Some reasons you may need an SRPR:
- Getting a building permit - the City may have asked you to submit a plan.
- Buying or selling a house - it's a vital tool for your research and due diligence.
- Resolving a boundary dispute - you need a survey plan to resolve a dispute with your neighbour.
- Resolving title issues - your lawyer or title insurance company needs a survey plan to resolve a title issue.
We currently offer this service for the Greater Toronto Area.
What we will do
We’ll perform a comprehensive land survey and provide you with a current, certified survey plan (SRPR) of your property—quickly, accurately and cost effectively.
The plan will illustrate the boundaries, fence locations, buildings and structures, and features in close proximity to the boundary. The plan will also show applicable title information such as any easements and right-of-ways, plus actual frontages and setbacks (to compare with the zoning requirements).
You'll have an authoritative document that is relied upon by lawyers, banks and other agencies.
Our five-step process includes:
- Comprehensive legal research of the property;
- On-site field work;
- In-office plan creation;
- Documentation of comments and opinions;
- Quality control and certification.
A standard SRPR does not include topographic information. You can add this to your package if required.
What you can expect
Our basic package starts at $6,000+HST and is performed and guaranteed by one of Ontario's trusted professional land survey firms.
What this package consists of:
- We will conduct extensive research of existing, historical plans and documents relating to your property and the location of its boundaries.
- A survey crew will determine the location of the boundaries "on the ground", identify the location of key structures on your land relative to the boundary, and note any features on or near the boundaries.
- The survey crew will set two official survey monuments (iron bars) at the front corners of your property (in accordance with survey standards).
- You’ll receive the SRPR as an electronic file (in PDF format), complete with comments and professional opinion from an Ontario Land Surveyor.
- Six signed and sealed hard copies will also be mailed to you for your records.
You do not need to be at home for the field crew to perform the field work. We do not go inside your home (unless measuring a shared interior wall). Please ensure we have access to the yards, that dogs are indoors, and consider advising your neighbours because we may need to access their property.
Special Note: If you have an existing survey plan and wish to have it updated, we recommend you first contact the survey firm that originally performed your survey as they are obligated to maintain the original survey field notes. You can find their contact information on your survey plan. Of course, if this is not a viable solution for you, we'd be happy to assist.
