So, I want to have a structural engineer come to take a look at the property I want to purchase.
One of the stipulations is that I must be able to produce the dimensional survey, which I understand to be the property survey. That’s my first question: is the ‘dimensional survey’ the same as the ‘property survey’?
Next: the realtor has only provided the cadastre, and states there is no property survey. So my next question: what can I glean from this? Is the cadastre the equivalent? Is this acceptable, to not have a property survey?
I do feel I should have a property survey, and wouldn’t it be lovely (but I’m dreaming of course) to have an architectural plan. But if the realtor can’t provide anything other than the cadastre and it’s not the same as what the structural engineer needs me to provide, to whom would I go next?
I’ll check with the structural engineer for any suggestions he might have; but would anyone have any recommendations, please?
