This is the 1st time I am posting on this forum.
I am building a house and have been told by my builder that there are no pegs on the property and I will have to get it done.
The houses to the left, right and back of the property have been constructed and I thought that the builder would not need pegs purely for the reason that the other houses have been constructed and he has a boundaries to work with coz the fences are up too.
Cutting the long story short, I hired a professional to do the pegs and after looking at the job he has done I was not satisfied with his work. Now I am no professional in this job hence I thought to post this question on this forum hoping someone can help me!
I have attached the photos of my land and the pegs that have been installed. The land is rectangular 14x32 =448sqm
I think the pegs installed are not done correctly as they are not in the straight line and the surveyor has just installed 3 pegs rather than 4.
Please let me know your thoughts!

Your surveyor should provide you with an as surveyed plan showing where the pegs are and any annotations. It may even be the house set out they have surveyed showing where the actual house line is.
The 2 yellow pegs are most likely offset from the boundary. If you look at the tall pegs with the pink ribbon attached it often says on that if the pegs are set back of the actual boundary line.
The reason the site has to be surveyed is to guaranteed to be building in the right spot. Fences are not exact and existing buildings can't be relied on.
The last thing you would want to do is start construction only to find out the house is in the wrong spot.
