3. Private measurement of land

Private land measurement is performed for various reasons, such as land valuation, property development, construction projects, boundary establishment, or land subdivision.

To ensure accuracy, it is advisable to hire a licensed surveyor with the necessary expertise and equipment to conduct the measurements professionally.

Surveyors use different methods and tools, including total stations, GNSS, aerial surveys, or other advanced technologies, depending on the land’s characteristics and project requirements.

Private measurement often involves establishing or verifying property boundaries, which is crucial for legal purposes and resolving boundary disputes.

Accurate measurements are important when subdividing land into smaller plots or lots, ensuring compliance with legal requirements, and maintaining proper boundary demarcation, subject to the conditions mentioned under section 85, 86, 87, of MLRC, 1966.

Surveyors prepare survey plans or reports that include detailed measurements, boundary information, and relevant observations, serving as legal evidence of the land’s dimensions.

Private measurements do not replace official land records or government surveys. It is important to consult official land records, comply with local regulations, and involve appropriate authorities for legal matters.
