The surveyor in action
The main role of the surveyor: the demarcation
The official name of the profession of surveyor is "geometer-expert". The law of May 7, 1946 has created the Order of Surveyors. A surveyor must be on the roll of the order to practice. He has legal and technical skills.
The surveyor intervenes in the demarcation of a field, in order toofficially establish its area. While the cadastral plan allows to know the surface of a ground as an indication, the surveyor is the only one to be authorized to demarcate.
Since the S.R.U law of 2000 and the Land Use Permit Act 2007, the boundary marking is mandatory on any building plot. The surveyor can also perform a boundary in case of dispute or amicably, at the request of two neighboring owners for example.

Among his many missions, the surveyor can also create or modify documents concerning condominiums.
