Legal Mapping

Possession is nine tenths of the law, and the map is the legal record of possession. It is of the utmost importance that mapping and associated surveys are an accurate representation of what is on the ground to avoid lengthy and costly legal proceedings, which can result if the necessary care and attention is not taken from the outset.

We at Control Surveys carry out surveys related to a wide range of legal mapping issues, which are detailed below.

As well as legal mapping services, we also offer a boundary “health check” where we compare boundary lines on a folio with the actual property boundaries so that there are no surprises later when you want to purchase or dispose of a property
