A deposited plan is a plan of survey, or compilation which has been lodged with NSW Land Registry Services (LRS). It defines the boundaries of a plot of land notated upon a certificate of title. Plans of subdivision, redefinition, delimitation, consolidation, leases greater than five years and some easements all require a Deposited Plan which is prepared by a Registered Surveyors and suitable for Lodgement at the LRS.

ARP Surveyors offer this service, along with the accompanying required documentation to have your boundaries changed according to your needs. We have on hand practical documents to help you along the way to follow the step by step process required when registering a new Deposited Plan from the initial concept thought through to the final registration of your plan

Distances from the walls of the structures to the boundary will be reported on orthogonally. It will also identify any easements, covenants or restrictions endorsed upon the Certificate of Title.
