Experienced in surveying, setting out and land registry mapping, we offer services to our clients that include tape surveying and levelling, and we engage sub-consultants to carry out total station surveying and GPS on advanced software which can produce speedy and accurate results.
Services We Provide
Land Registry mapping
When a property or part of a property requires a new title, the new plot needs to be lodged and approved by the Property Registration Authority (formerly the Land Registry). Some properties may not have been previously registered, and may have to go through a process called First Registration. We provide a complete service of site survey, area certification and production of title maps for submission to Property Registration Authority.
Lease agreement mapping
We prepare lease maps as part of an agreement between a landlord and tenant.
We prepare the relevant maps for businesses that are seeking licences through the courts.
Accident scene mapping
Inevitably, many individuals, or organisations with a fleet of vehicles, will, from time to time, have a vehicle involved in an accident that will end up being examined in court.
At McCabe Architects we provide a specialist service to clients, whereby our experienced surveyors will record the exact topographical details of the scene of a crash, and formulate maps as part of an expert witness report.
This data can be presented in a comprehensible form as part of a legal brief, and our experienced and credible expert witnesses will present the data in court trials.
Auctioneering/Estate Agent mapping
We can prepare maps for the sale of property and lands. Normally we produce a location map to guide the client to the general area, and a property map to show the extent of the unit or land holding for sale. We also examine the title maps and verify the boundaries, and finally calculate and certify the specified area.
Declaration of identity
McCabe Architects provide Declarations of Identity to certify that all of the services to a property are located within the site boundary of the property. These services usually include septic tank/waste water treatment systems and percolation areas, utilities, the building and ancillary works, and private supply water wells.
The Declaration is signed by one of our registered architects and is witnessed in the presence of a Commissioner of Oaths or practising solicitor. The declaration refers to a folio number, and is accompanied by the folio map outlining the site. It is generally requested by the purchaser’s solicitors to ensure that no issues arise in the future with access to these services.
Boundary dispute resolution
We carry out detailed building and property surveys related to boundary dispute resolution. The professional qualifications of our senior staff enable them to act as expert witnesses should court actions arise.
