Surveyor’s Real Property Report (SRPR)

SRPR is a plan done in a format to accommodate a real estate transaction. It consists of a plan of survey and a brief surveyor’s report about the property. The plan shows the following:

**Note: This is our most common request, as it pertains to buying and selling a property.

  • The property boundaries and survey monuments. 
  • The location of buildings and other structures in relation to property lines.
  • The location of fences, driveways, walkways and retaining walls.
  • Any visible encroachments into the property and the adjacent lands
  • The location of the registered easements and right-of-ways.
  • The adverse usage of lands that might lead to claims of easement by prescription.

This is a plan of survey and report prepared under Sections 28, 29 and 30 of O.Reg. 216/10 of the Surveyors Act, RSO, 1990 Ch. S.29. A SRPR is prepared specifically to illustrate the location of buildings or structures relative to the boundaries of a unit of land. It also shows the location of any other physical features and registered encumbrances, such as easements, on or immediately adjacent to the property. In a Real Estate transaction, a current Surveyor’s Real Property Report provides the purchaser, the seller, the lending institution, the municipality, the Realtor and all other parties to the transaction with an accurate representation of the property prior to the purchase being completed. A Surveyor’s Real Property Report must be prepared by a licensed Ontario Land Surveyor.
