A private property owner contacted Geo-Info to investigate the position of the boundary of his property after some farmland was sold to a neighbour who was insistent that part of his decking encroached on to the land.
The neighbour had removed some vegetation and undercut the foundations to the decking area causing structural issues.
Geo-Info attended the site and measured the position of the decking, the outline of the property and other boundary features.
Using a combination of robotic and reflectorless methods the entire survey was carried out without the need to access any third-party land.
The survey was positioned to Ordnance Survey coordinates by survey grade GNSS receiver, enabling direct comparison with the Land Registry title plan.
The plan produced, clearly shows that the entirety of the decking is within the registered title of the private property owner.
The surveyed position of the building tied in to within a couple of inches of the Land Registry position and we were able to inform the property owner that the registered boundary position was approximately 2.9 meters from the edge of his house.
