Cadastral surveying is the discipline of land surveying that relates to the laws of land ownership and the definition of property boundaries.

It involves interpreting and advising on boundary locations, land ownership, restrictions and interest in properties and recording such information on a survey plan, which the surveyor is required to lodge with the relevant government agency.

In Queensland, only registered Cadastral Surveyors can perform a boundary survey and place a survey mark that defines a property boundary. Only a registered Cadastral Surveyor can certify survey plans for lodgement with the government.

  • Location certificates
