Due to popular demand the 'Back to Basics'  seminar which was presented last year on 3 November 2016 will be repeated for members. Jeff Clarke and Gerry Shone will be presenting a comprehensive presentation on Back to Basics - Titles, Surveying and Areas on Plans. It is highly recommended that students and recent graduates attend such a valuable session as some of the areas that will be discussed are not addressed in current Valuation courses. 

Jeff Clarke and Gerry Shone will cover the following topics during their presentation.

  • Background of titles created under various forms of legislation
  • Plans associated with titles and their various surveying nuisances
  • Right of Way, easements and other restrictions on title
  • Discussion of imperial length measurements and imperial areas shown on plans
  • Revenge reserves and their impact on legal abuttal
  • Differentiation between fencing and boundary alignments
  • Plans that do not show areas and the rationale for this
  • Areas shown on building subdivision plans - a surveyors viewpoint
