Surveyor’s Real Property Report
McIntosh Perry’s licensed Ontario Land Surveyors prepare the legal paperwork required to document the position of buildings and structures relative to the boundaries of a property. This process involves researching the title and existing plans, a thorough field study, and analysis of all findings. In the Surveyor’s Real Property Report (SRPR), we also include the physical features and encumbrances on (or adjacent to) the property, and our experienced surveyors detail their impressions and any issues identified. These critical measures protect both buyers and sellers in a real estate transaction by providing an accurate representation of the property.
Plan of Survey with Topography
In preparation for real estate dealings or construction projects, professional surveyors at McIntosh Perry conduct pre-engineering topographic surveys. These surveys thoroughly detail the land features of an existing property. We include illustrations of elevations and contours, as well as physical elements above and below ground, such as landscaping, structures, roadways, waterways, and utilities. This vital information serves as the base plan upon which engineers, architects, developers, and contractors depend for future development of the site.
Commercial, government and residential clients regularly enlist the help of McIntosh Perry’s Ontario Land Surveyors to compile Reference Plans (also known as R-plans). Should land division or land severance in Ontario be necessary, we provide accurate graphical representations of that property. In addition to showing the surveyed boundaries and dimensions of each parcel of land, other physical elements (i.e. easements, rights-of-way, fences, etc.) that may affect the title of a property are also included.
Plan of Subdivision and Condominium
Our survey team prepares Plans of Subdivision, also referred to as Registered Plans or M-Plans, which depict the division of single parcels of land into multiple lots, blocks and roads. This information is critical for the development of new residential, commercial or industrial neighbourhoods. All plans include accurate dimensions and boundary information, numbered lots, roadway data, and the future sites of public spaces, such as schools or parks. Our municipal relationships allow us to facilitate client approvals as prescribed under the Ontario Planning Act.
McIntosh Perry is also qualified to prepare Plans of Condominium. We understand the complexities involved and can help bring your next condo project from Design to Registration.
In situations where the expropriation of land for public use is proposed, the survey team at McIntosh Perry prepares and certifies legal documents that provide a descriptive illustration of the land in question. We execute these plans with a full understanding and strict enforcement of statute law as it applies to the Ontario Expropriations Act.
Industrial and Residential Construction Layout Survey Services
A project must begin with accurate engineering plans to ensure any construction initiative is completed on time and on budget. McIntosh Perry’s certified land surveyors provide site layout and staking survey services that identify the precise location of all land elements on a construction site. Our knowledge of construction engineering combined with the use of leading-edge technology expedites industrial and residential construction projects.
Technology is an integral component of the surveying process. To deliver the most accurate and reliable data, the survey group at McIntosh Perry leverages only the latest equipment and resources.
The MPSI field team collects survey data using a combination of modern Trimble solutions. Specifically, we utilize Trimble Robotic Total Stations, Trimble Real-Time Network (RTN) and Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)—also referred to as Global Positioning Systems or GPS—and Trimble Digital Levelling equipment. Control networks and observations are adjusted using a least-squares adjustment and analysis software, and statistical results are reported at 95% confidence.
These advanced tools and proven methods increase productivity, eliminate costly errors, and ensure your information is always accurate and reliable.
