Easement Surveys

An easement survey establishes an area of land that is professionally surveyed in order for a solicitor to then legally create an easement. Often easements are created as part of a subdivision on property development project.

Survey Gisborne Limited undertakes easement related surveys in conjunction with a solicitor who will carry out the legal component.

Easements are required for specific purposes and are legally binding. They allow for certain legal rights/restrictions on properties. Easement can run in perpetuity or for a specific period of time. Examples: private or public utility services, building height restrictions, boundaries on cross-leased properties and covenants.

Easement are most often used to establish the right to convey electricity, telecommunication and computer media, gas, water, maintain right of way or legal access as well as the right to drain sewage and stormwater.
