Creation of easement survey

What is an easement?

An easement, sometimes known as a right of way (ROW), is a section of land registered on a property title, which gives an entity the right to use the land for a specific purpose even though they are not the land owner, such as shared driveways, power lines or drainage. A creation of easement allows for services in-ground or above ground, and may include access to those services. A creation of easement survey is always in relationship to the property boundaries, so you can understand your site boundaries, subdivision boundaries, and easements using this survey.


Why do I need a Creation of Easement Survey?

A creation of easement survey is required to provide and show equal access throughout a subdivision. An easement survey also shows what site features subdivision tenants share, such as a shared wall that cannot be knocked down without the approval of both tenants.

If a subdivision requires a new pad-mounted transformer, a creation of easement survey will outline rights and access, which need to be provided as per Australian authorities' codes and regulations. Our surveyors are located throughout Australia and can assist you with understanding the relevant codes and regulations for your creation of easement.


It is important to carefully and adequately define any easement that is to be created. Applications may be rejected if they are not sufficiently precise.

Our Licensed Land Surveyors will work through the process with you, to ensure your project is a success.
