Purpose of the Telephone Consultation

The Boundary Advisor's Telephone Consultation allows you to talk through with an experienced professional those issues of concern to you that relate to the boundaries of your land, or to a right of way that either benefits or burdens your land. These issues may result from difficulties in your relationship with a neighbouring landowner.

The Telephone Consultation may:

  • help you to better understand the issues that concern you;
  • inform your decisions as to how to progress your interests;
  • help you to decide how to move towards settlement of a dispute with a neighbour.

 

Advantages of the Telephone Consultation

It is inexpensive, because:

  • the Boundary Advisor does not travel to you but will remotely view your land using Internet resources during the Telephone Consultation;
  • by restricting the consultation to a telephone conversation (usually of between 30 and 60 minutes) there are no expensive written reports to pay for.

It is a well-informed discussion, because:

  • the client provides key documents to the Boundary Advisor in advance of the consultation.

It is nationally available:

  • the Telephone Consultation is not affected by how far from the Boundary Advisor you live.

It is quick:

  • the Telephone Consultation will normally be held within a few days of the original request.

 

Expected outcome

The client will be more knowledgeable and better advised on the issues discussed during the Telephone Consultation and able to make better informed decisions arising out of this knowledge.

The advice that is offered during the Telephone Consultation does not amount to legal advice: the Boundary Advisor is a chartered land surveyor and not a trained lawyer. What you will receive is sound practical advice from a leading expert in the field of Boundary Demarcation and Disputes.

I have no scanner: how do I get my documents to the Boundary Advisor?
