Whether you are about to commence a home renovation project or are in charge of a large commercial construction project, it’s likely you’ll need a land survey. Cost is always a factor in any construction project – big or small – so it’s not surprising we are frequently asked about the cost of land surveying. Here’s what you need to know.
Land Survey Cost Australia
The cost of surveying will depend on the type of survey you need (one of our most frequently asked questions is about boundary survey cost) along with a number of other factors. These include:
● Existing Surveys and Records
The more information the surveyor can work with initially, the greater their ability to offer a precise estimate. A lack of information can make the job more complicated and time-consuming, so the existence of accurate surveys that have previously been completed or records available regarding a property will generally lower the price.
● Size, Shape & Accessibility
A small, easy-to-reach site with a simple layout is quicker to access and assess. Unusual or out-of-the-way plots, such as a parcel set on a steep hill, may be a more involved task. This can certainly affect the cost of a land survey.
Different climate patterns or vegetation on a site may alter sight lines, accessibility, and much more. In cases of excessive vegetation, some tree or shrub removal may be necessary before the surveyor can proceed. This can add additional costs for the property owner.
A reputable licensed surveyor will try to estimate final costs as accurately as possible, erring on the high side when necessary.
