Structures are outlined with hatching to mark the limits of the existing building(s), and are occasionally shown in enlargement or exaggeration to emphasize relationship to boundaries. Surveyors have historically used existing permanent building structures as references and evidence of the property lines and boundary markers, with dimensions being provided from these permanent building structures to property lines.


Identifies the shape and location of the permanent building structures on the property and adjoining land.

Why is this important?

Survey plan confirms that buildings have been built within the property boundaries, and that adjoining building structures do not encroach over property lines. Furthermore, it provides the reference point from which to measure and determine property boundaries.
