How long does a survey take?


Can someone tell me how long a new survey should take to be done in Toronto? What's a normal amount of time to expect?

Hi Jenny;

New survey plan completion depends on several factors:

- How large is the property;
- Is it in an urban, suburban or rural area; 
- Can the surveyor get working on your survey right away?
- Is the lot backing onto a ravine or conservation land?

Typically, for a smaller (standard size) urban property it takes approximately 7-10 business days assuming the land surveyor starts the survey work immediately. In the busy Spring and Summer seasons timelines can stretch as surveyors' workloads increase. If your project is time sensitive, make sure that your surveyor knows and can get the job completed for you in time.
