Property transactions involve huge sums of money for both buyers and sellers. The documents that form the basis of such informed decisions ought to be prepared with utmost care, attention and qualifications of a land surveyor. One such legal document is the Real Property Report (RPR).
The process of generating a reliable and detailed Real Property Report (RPR) is interesting yet time-taking. It requires several hours or days of effort by a team of land surveyors. Understanding what they do to create an RPR helps get a closer look at the stages of a land development project.
The following sections will look into greater detail as to how a Real Property Report is prepared.
Who Creates An RPR?
Most typically, an RPR is created by a recognized land surveyor (as chosen by the property stakeholder) under the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association. The land surveyor is qualified, experienced and equipped to gather, plan, direct and conduct the necessary processes required for RPR generation.
How Is An RPR Prepared?
Let us understand the many processes and steps that go into creating a Real Property Report:
– The first step in creating a Real Property Report is conducting field surveys by the land surveyor.
– The survey company’s team of experts made several visits to the property and its vicinity to undertake assessments.
– Using varying machinery and equipment, the land surveyors measure and locate the different parts of the property.
– Accurate measurements are taken and recorded. All structures such as decks, sheds, patios, fences, etc. are identified, measured and noted.
– A digital drawing of the entire property site is created using all the calculations and measurements recorded by the team.
The above mentioned points are easier said than done. These take upto several days with a team of land surveyors re-visiting the site a number of times.
The process of generating Real Property Reports necessitates the usage of different modern equipment by the land surveyor. These equipment such as total stations, metal detectors, GPS devices, etc. serve varying purposes throughout the journey.
The usual survey site includes placing reference points in the form of orange flags or painted portions at several points on the property. Metal detectors are continually used for detecting posts.
The Final Stages
The land surveyor generates a final report that goes to the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association. Surveyors will also send it to the City of Calgary for a final review. The aim is to check the authenticity of the reports against the municipal bylaws. Once it is reviewed and if correctly prepared, a compliance stamp is added by the association and returned successfully.
