A forum on building homes! I'm excitied!!
I was wondering how much is reasonable to pay for a block of land to be surveyed? I've been quoted $600+$60GST for a 5 acre block. I've also been told that this needs to be done before plans can be drawn up for the house, and that $660 is the usual price regardless of land size.
I've also been told that the land survey is valid only for 3 months and plans need to be drawn and submitted to the council in this time.
So, is $660 for land survey rediculous?
Cheers, good luck to all you home builders!

Ours was $500 (builder organsied) and we have had our master plans drawn up and about to be submitted to council and have not had the land surveyed yet.
