What is involved in getting my property corners or property lines marked?

Property line surveys can vary in difficulty and cost depending on the size of your lot, the terrain, and the age of the legal survey plan. There are two possible scenarios we could encounter when we arrive to mark your property lines or corners:

1.    Property boundaries are governed by official survey posts set at the ends and deflections in the boundary. If the official survey posts are found in place and agree with the registered dimensions of the survey plan, then stakes may be set to demark the boundary. This would be the optimal scenario, and would involve the least amount of work.

2.    If the official survey posts at your property corners are missing, then a reposting survey is necessary and new survey posts will have to be set on the lot corners. We will have to expand our search to find surrounding survey evidence so we can accurately re-create the positions of the missing corners. This will also require us to prepare a Posting Plan pursuant to Section 68 of the Land Title Act, and register it at the Kamloops Land Title Office. This scenario will be more costly, but comes with the following benefits:

  • Your property corners will now be monumented with legal survey posts for future reference
  • You will be provided with a copy of the Posting Plan showing the dimensions between the found and set monuments
