Before an arrangement for survey can take place, there are processes and requirements to be met. This is the responsibility of the office of the Commissioner of Lands.  When all requirements are met by a customer, that customer is advised to liaise with the Assistant Surveyor General and Principal Surveyors from the Survey Division within the Ministry of Lands for a land survey to be carried out. However, a survey can only be carried out after it is endorsed by the Surveyor General.
