What is an Identification Survey?

An identification survey is where we resurvey and remark the boundary corners.  The survey needs to be of sufficient extent and accuracy such that we are satisfied that we have marked the corners in their true legal position.  A plan of Identification Survey is then supplied to the Department of Natural Resources and Mines as a permanent record of the survey.

When do I need an Identification Survey?

If you are uncertain of your property boundary location; wish to construct a new fence on the boundary and are not sure the existing fence or boundary marker pegs are correct; are in dispute with a neighbour as to the exact location of the boundary; wish to construct a building on or close to the boundary then you need an Identification Survey.

Having conducted hundreds of Identification Surveys over the years CadCon is able to provide cost effective, timely and most importantly, accurate Identification Surveys for any property.

Can I subdivide my land?

Every situation is different, that’s why CadCon offers a free initial analysis that quickly identifies whether you can subdivide your land.  Once we know if it is possible we use our experience and expertise to determine if it is feasible i.e. will it be profitable to subdivide?

We can manage the entire process for you from initial searches and detail surveys, through new boundary design, development applications and eventually, title surveys.  We can recommend and engage engineers and other consultants who may be needed for the process, ensuring a smooth and profitable process from start to finish.

What is involved in a Development Application to Council?

The development application and approval process ranges from very simple and straightforward to extremely complex.  Our job is to explain the process to our clients such that they are very clear in matters such as the prospects of a successful application; the likely costs of an application and if required, the likely costs of the development itself; potential risks; and likely timeframes.

By undertaking comprehensive initial analysis followed by provision of detailed, logical explanations, CadCon’s clients can make informed decisions and enter the process with a great degree of certainty as to what the shape, time and cost of the approval will be.
