Land surveying

Land surveying involves determining location, describing land areas and demarcating the boundaries of a property. It is governed by Section 34 of Québec’s Land Surveyors Act. In order to produce the required documents (plans, certificates, reports, appraisals, etc.), land surveyors take into account a number of technical and legal aspects in compliance with rigorous, structured and defined rules. If you are unsure about the nature of the document you need, do not hesitate to contact us for expert advice.
