Tips when buying real estate

  • The survey plan is the most important document in every real estate transaction.
  • Without a survey, there is no way to know with certainty whether you are getting the correct house or property.
  • You need to know if there are any easements or a right of way on the property you are interested in purchasing.
  • Whether you are buying a new or resale home, make sure the lot size is in the offer.
  • Always examine the survey plan carefully. Buying a house or property without first comparing it to a survey plan is risky. Property sizes must always be verified by examining an up-to-date survey.
  • Without a surveyor’s signature and seal/stamp – it’s not a survey. With hand-sketched additions to a survey plan – it’s no longer a valid survey.


  • When purchasing a house, your mortgage lender may require a Building Location Survey Certificate to determine if there are any encroachments, easements or a right of way.
  • When purchasing property, obtain the Subdivision Plan and, if necessary, consult a BC Land Surveyor to determine the exact location of the lot you are buying. It isn’t easy to tell one lot from another
