Installing a Bench-mark as Part of a Staking Operation

Staking

Staking is a way of physically marking the boundaries of a property. This is a set of operations done by a land surveyor using bench-marks to indicate his opinion on the exact location of a property line. If you are interested in staking on the West Island, contact our team today. 


When you hire a land surveyor to stake your property line, you are asking him to indicate his or her opinion of where exactly your land ends, but the place where your land ends is necessarily the place where your neighbour’s land begins. You are therefore unilaterally asking for a professional opinion on a line that is of very great concern to your neighbour. You must understand that this is an extremely delicate act. Luckily, in order to protect you and your neighbour, there is a regulated procedure in place that all land surveyors who carry out such operations must follow, making it possible to quickly resolve clear situations and to identify situations that may or may not become subject to dispute.

Frequently, marks of occupation such as fences or hedges are not installed precisely on property lines. This is not necessarily a problem in itself if the neighbours are aware of the situation and tolerate it for the sake of good relations. On the other hand, this difference between marks of occupation and bench-marks can become problematic if one of the owners remains convinced that the fence, according to him, should be the boundary line. It is for this reason that the land surveyor must systematically investigate to see if either party is likely to be disturbed by the bench-marks. The land surveyor must then communicate with that person to ensure that the situation is not contentious. If the land surveyor concludes that the situation is not contentious, he continues his operations and installs the bench-marks. On the other hand, if the situation is undeniably contentious, the only way to solve the problem is to proceed to a boundary determination.
