Site Pegging & Re-establishment Surveys

Boundary pegs (also known as “survey pegs” or “lot pegs”) are placed on the perimeter or corners of a property’s land boundaries to physically mark out the land’s boundary. A land’s property boundaries are established through land surveys and are marked through boundary pegs. You can find your boundary pegs at ground level in the corners of your lot.

Often the boundary pegs can go missing or move over time, as they can get lost in the soil, grass, or removed completely due to earthworks. As a result, they will need to be re-pegged in replacement of the original pegs. Please note that it is also a breach of law for you to remove or reposition your boundary pegs. Overall, a re-establishment survey and re-pegging of the site would be required to redefine land boundaries or for the purpose of establishing land ownership. This is a crucial step that most developments require in the beginning stages of construction that need to be executed accurately.

Some situations where this is needed are:

  • Establishing lots in newly developed areas
  • Building or replacing a boundary fence where fence lines may have been lost or shifted
  • Constructing near boundary lines
  • Buying or selling property
  • Establishing your rights and restrictions
  • Settling disputes that suspect encroachments

It is crucial that the pegs are placed accurately by experienced surveyors, as imprecise data used throughout the project could cause major discrepancies in the finished product and may lead to legal issues. With our licensed and experienced Land Surveyors, we can help you to execute an accurate assessment of your site to avoid costly errors, legal issues and disputes with your neighbours so that you will be able to proceed with your project in confidence.

To identify your land’s property boundaries, a surveyor will investigate your legal description in the form of a land parcel that is defined by a Certificate of Title. This certificate defines exactly where your land is in relation to adjoining land parcels, which can then be utilised to show the relationship on the ground. Establishing your property boundaries allows you to understand the limit of land owned and can be used to determine the final location of fences and buildings lines to avoid disputes with neighbours due to illegally building over a title boundary. Our qualified surveyors initially measure up the subject land and provide a plan clearly indicating exact title boundaries as well as pegs or other physical marks to identify boundaries on the ground.

Our land surveyors are adept at thinking and working in this landscape and use mathematical methods and specialised equipment to produce initial site data for pre-construction work and physical marks on the ground to direct construction on the ground.
