Redefinition of Boundaries

A Redefinition Survey may be required to locate the legal boundaries of your property for building consent purposes, before erecting fences, or to determine the extent of a parcel of land before purchase.

Locating Your Boundaries

Avoid Disputes

Knowing the exact location of the boundaires of your land will help avoid expensive encroachment disputes and ill-will between you and your neighbours.

An NZIS member who is a Licensed Cadastral Surveyor can:

  • Help resolve existing boundary problems
  • Indicate or confirm the correctness of existing boundary marks
  • Replace boundary marks which have been removed or disturbed
  • Place additional marks to better delineate a boundary
  • Prepare legal survey data when necessary to document the location of the boundaries of your land
  • Advise you of possible remedies when boundary disputes or encroachments have occurred
