This Table shows which consents are required for Subdivisions, Consolidations and Servitudes of various types of properties.
Email the property description (Erf number and Township or Farm Portion number and farm name/number and registration division) in the case of cadastral work or the postal address or Google earth co-ordinate to email@example.com. We will then provide a quotation. If the quotation is accepted, the signed copy must be scanned and e-mailed or faxed (0866996109) to us. This will serve as a letter of appointment.
Geospatial data is obtained from the relevant Surveyor General's office. The necessary calculations and co-ordinate conversions is calculated and used to produce a drawing showing the extends of the site and all servitudes registered in the Surveyor General's office.
Use: This drawing is used by the town planner to create a layout plan.
Time: The preparation time needed for the calculations and draughting depends on the availability and clarity as well as the date of survey of the filed diagrams and general plans.
Cost: The cost ranges between R800 - R20 00 but is usually done free of charge if the rest of the land surveying work is also done by the same company.
Land Surveyor / Servitude Certificate
The Land Surveyor's Certificate describe all the restrictive conditions of title. These include servitudes, mining areas, lease hold areas etc.
Use: This certificate is used by the Conveyancers to "compare notes" and to establish the restrictive conditions registered in the Surveyor Generals office as well as the deeds office. This information is used to create the layout plan and the conditions of establishment.
Time: The draughting of the Land Surveyor's certificate can take up to two weeks. All the deeds from all the properties and servitudes must be made available to the land surveyor.
Cost: The cost ranges between R 9 000.00 - R 30 000.00.
Topographical Survey and Contour Generation
A detailed topographical survey is carried out in order to establish the position
(Y and X) as well as the elevation (Z-above mean sea level) for the required
features. This involves identifying different engineering and natural features and
surveying in their position in space. The raw field data is then calculated and used to draught a Topographical map showing the various features on different layers in a dwg/dxf drawing.
Use: The Topographical map along with the basemap is used by the town planer to draught the layout plan.
Time: The time taken to carry out the survey depends significantly on the terrain. Dense forestation and heavily populated urban sites can take up a lot of time. Estimated time ranges from 1 day up to 1 week.
Cost: The cost ranges between R 4 000.00 - R 200 000.00.
Cadastral Survey related work includes: beacon and boundary relocations, subdivision and consolidation surveys, servitude registrations/cancellations, land surveyor certificates, registration of diagrams and general plans with the Surveyor General.
Use: The diagrams and general plans are used for registration in the deeds office.
Time: The time taken to carry out the survey depends significantly on the terrain. Dense forestation and heavily populated urban sites can take up a lot of time. Five field teams deliver an approximate number of 1200 erven per week by using a combination of GPS and Total Station.
Cost: For any cadastral work there is a recommended tariff.
The SG fees must be paid through GPS Land Surveyors.
