I have an old survey that I want to update, but I can't locate the original surveyor. Can it be updated by another surveyor?

A: Unfortunately, the original survey can only be updated by the land surveying firm that created it and owns the copyright to the plan. You will be unable to have a plan updated if that firm is no longer active (even if its records are owned by another company). If the original surveyor is unavailable, the simplest and most reliable solution is to commission a new survey plan.
