Detail and level survey

Detail and level survey


Detail and level surveys are sometimes referred to as contour surveys. This survey type involves the surveyor visiting the site and capturing reduced levels (RLs), easements, property dimensions, buildings, substantial trees and other above ground features together with the outline of adjoining properties as well as street information.

Architects and/or designers usually require this type of survey to begin detailed design for a Development Application (DA) or Complying Development Certificate (CDC) application.

This survey is most useful when all the proposed works are to be new buildings/ structures. They are also useful for projects that are additions to existing buildings but only when the proposed works will be a large distance away from any boundary.

Combined detail and identification survey

Combined detail and ID survey


This survey type involves a qualified surveyor visiting the site to verify survey information. This clarifies the boundaries, locates the exact existing building position relative to the boundaries and identifies any encroachments or irregularities. Once this is complete, the surveyor captures reduced levels (RLs), easements, property dimensions, substantial trees and other above ground features together with the adjoining properties as well as street information.

At the completion, you will be given two survey plans:
1. A detail and level survey
2. Identification (ID) survey

Architects and/or designers usually require these to begin detailed design for a Development Application (DA) or Complying Development Certificate (CDC) application.

This survey type is most useful with projects that involve additions very close to the boundary and/or proposed building works in inner city areas where boundary locations are uncertain.

This survey type is also helpful when lodging a Building Information Certificate (BIC) in instances where unauthorised works have taken place, and further building works are proposed.

Deposited plan drawn in CAD

Deposited plan drawn in CAD


The surveyor obtains the deposited plans of an allotment from NSW Land and Property Information (LPI) and then draws this allotment in CAD.

Architects and/or designers usually require this very simple drawing to carry out quick envelope checks for a developer, especially in the case where there is an easement in close proximity to a proposed building.

Land owners may also require these to show boundary dimensions and areas in the metric system and to provide a clear representation of their allotment, as some deposited plans (DP’s) are often very difficult to read/interpret.

Identification survey

ID survey


Qualified surveyors visit the site and provide a report showing accurate setbacks of buildings from the boundary, finished floor levels, ridge levels and gutter levels. This report also identifies any encroachments such as neighbouring fences.

This is generally the last survey type required at the completion of a project. It allows the Certifier to confirm that the buildings have been built according to the approved plans.

This survey type is also helpful when lodging a Building Information Certificate (BIC) in instances where unauthorised works have taken place, and no further works are proposed.
