i kno where i live, surveys are based on the square acreage…so the bigger the piece of property, the more it’ll cost… i dont kno the average price tho so i’m not sure if that number sounds too high or low… sorry! :-/

I think it varies from place to place, but my parents just bought about 70 acres of land and their surveryor charged them under 1k and it involved a lot of walking! However that didn’t include the legal survery for a house, he did mark where a camp could go though.

I work for an architecture firm and the engineer who produces our site surveys charges about $2000 for a survey and the certified site plan that results from that.  That doesn’t include a layout for the addition, and any other work beyond that is charged hourly.

@bakerella: Contact a local real estate agent and ask them if they could provide you with a quote. I know in BC it’s done through the LTO and with sales/pruchases of homes it’s usually lower than that price. I’m not sure what the independent cost when needed for a reno would be, however. The agents will know best and usually they don’t mind providing the information if they’re an established office.

Wow…looking at these prices…

I had one done for $350 and the blueprint for $150. The house isn’t on a lot of land and I had stakes put down so I can put up a fence soon.
