Location Certificates are required by municipalities for new building construction, to confirm that the new building(s) meet their bylaw standards. Location Certificates may also be required by mortgaging companies to accurately analyze the current state of the property. While a Location Certificate will not permanently establish boundaries, it will represent an up to date status of the property and highlight any possible encroachments, easements or right of ways tied to the property
Construction and Layout Surveys
Construction sites often require land surveying services to layout new roads, buildings and infrastructure. Land surveyors provide elevation and grade work for equipment operators to visualize what the design of the construction site is supposed to look like. Providing the surveying work for underground sewer, water, and electrical services, land surveyors can layout proper ditching and drainage techniques.
Easements and Right of Ways
Sometimes used interchangeably, easements and right of ways grant a right or use or passage to someone other than the owner of the property. Many right of ways come in the form of shared driveways or walking trails, while easements are more so required for utility lines and water/sewer lines. These areas are non construction areas, so it is very important to know exactly where the limits of the easement are.
