For over 25 years, J C White Geomatics Limited has been using its experience and knowledge to provide solicitors throughout the south-east with practical advice and services to aid their clients.
Given the ever increasing value of land and property, individuals and companies are looking to either protect their investment or maximise the extent and value of their ownership.
J C White Geomatics Limited has developed a number of services relating to property and land issues which will be of assistance, ranging from land sub-division, first registration and lease plans to rights of way, adverse possession and boundary disputes.
Apart from the measurement and preparation of boundary plans which are involved in the services listed above, we are able to offer advice and carry out monitoring of structures and landforms for settlement and movement.
Although these activities will require a preliminary site visit for evaluation, they may or may not require fieldwork to survey features on the ground.
The end result of any of these three activities is the preparation of a boundary plan, which will initially be to sent to a solicitor, and/or his or her client, for confirmation that the plan shows what is intended.
The boundary plan can then be sent to the appropriate Land Registry office and/or incorporated into a legal document.
The old adage 'an Englishman's home is his castle' is still as true today as it has ever been. At J C White Geomatics Limited we have seen an increase in enquiries, relating to the position of property boundaries from both individuals and solicitors.
This increase is the result of recent media interest in boundary disputes, as well as the fact that individuals have become more aware of the limitations of the 'General Boundaries Rule'
It is likely that any one of these activities will involve some form of court hearing, and J C White Geomatics Limited is able to offer the services of an expert witness with experience of preparing reports in accordance with civil procedure rules and attending court.
Our involvement in this activity utilises our reputation as measurement specialists, and we are able to advise on establishing a system for the periodic monitoring of a structure or landform.
Solicitors have used our expertise in this field in situations where a client wishes to demonstrate whether a structure or landform is or is not moving over a period of time, possibly as a result of an insurance claim.
