Purchasing land to build a home is an exciting exercise for anyone. Before you purchase your land, you may need to hire a chartered land surveyor to evaluate your potential purchase (this is most often a requirement from banks and they have a list of approved surveyors).
A topographical survey is also helpful to have as it will point out any problem areas – low lying land that is prone to flooding during the rainy season or storm surge. Early assessment will ensure that the foundation for any future structure is suited to your property. Land surveyors offer associated services such as mapping, boundary demarcations, construction layout surveys, precision measurements of length, angle and elevation of land as well as conducting analysis for land use.
Additionally, some land surveyors may even provide property management services that can help you improve the value of your property when you begin building your home.
