Does the Measured Building Survey include Garden or Land of the Property?
Does it include the Garden or outside of the property?

What is included in a topographical survey?
This includes the
- tree positions,
- outline of the roof,
- eave and
- ridge heights
- of the neighbouring property, and windows.
The neighbouring properties’ ridge and window levels are important for a right to light survey. This is needed in developments such as home extension or loft conversion.
When extending your home sideways or higher you need to consider your neighbour’s access to natural sunlight. If this is not considered in the planning stage or the design phase, it can result into a litigation against you. This can lead to fines of £100k or even the demolition of your extension.
