Public surveying in the State of Berlin

Public surveyors – as a consequence of their “public appointment” – are entrusted with statutory duties. In the State of Berlin it is our job to certify certain facts regarding land, much in the same manner as a notary certifies the validity of contracts. Together, surveyors and notaries are the guarantors of protection of title. Surveys contribute to public faith in the accuracy of land registers; for this reason, they are subject to high quality standards.

We will be pleased to advise you, or to support you by

  • creating new boundaries (partition surveying)
    drawing up updated documentation describing newly formed boundaries
  • determining and demarcating boundaries
    determining existing boundaries on the basis of cadastral maps, setting boundary marks for existing boundaries

    - for building permit applications regarding planned construction projects on the basis of regulations concerning building documents, including clearances and use calculations
