 Who do we service?

Our services are centered around the provisioning of services to private individuals, farmers, businesses, financial institutions and developers.

 

 We have consciously undertaken not to provide any services to government or municipalities due to the associated risks.

 

Please see the client profile page for detailed information.

 

 How is the business model structured?

For the past 12 years we have successfully provided services from our base in Lydenburg - Mpumalanga.  During this period we established a consistent client base of local and international clients - most of which are return clients.

 

Due to our active presence in Lydenburg, Hoedspruit, Dullstroom, Machadodorp, Burgersfort, Steelpoort, Ohrigstad, etc. we have an effective and efficient professional network established that can tackle any problem.

 

The  business model is based on the notion  that clients benefit from my history of success and expertise  that have been honed and fine -tuned over many years.  It is a services-based model that is not restricted by the effort, but determined by the required outcome.

 How does the process work?

We are a land surveying private practice specializing in property development.  Services provided include all aspects associated with property development: Topographic & Engineering surveying, Cadastral surveying, Sectional Title Surveying & Community Scheme Management.

 

As professional land surveyors we are involved in many property disputes and also provide mediation services in order to resolve these disputes.

 

The verification of documentation in terms of the municipal SPLUMA By-law requirements is an important aspect of property development that requires dedicated attention.  We have an established relationship with most municipalities where we function and have successfully intervened and provided critical assistance in getting property transfers finalized.

 

Please see the services page for detailed information regarding services provided.

 

 

 

Our office in Lydenburg is accessible to all clients who wish to engage with us personally.

 

However, as much of the work is done off-site, we provide consultations via email, WhatsApp and  telephone to get things going.  If necessary, we also undertake on-site consultations.

 

In addition to the historic development files of Lydenburg for the past 30 years, we maintain an extensive aerial photography record of the areas where we work .

 

Still unsure whether we can assist?

 

 Make use of the no obligation offer to a free consultation as many have  done  before you - or simply give us a call or drop us an  email  with your query:  ludi@alnsurvey.co.za

 Our Story

I always wanted to be a land surveyor and never considered being anything else.  Although this in itself is not strange, what is odd is that I never actually knew a land surveyor or had any idea what a land surveyor does!  Perhaps it was a calling.

 

Now, 35 years later, I am a still a land surveyor and loving it.  Having being exposed to various disciplines within land surveying, we chose to settle and practice from a rural setting in order to satisfy my profound love for the African bush.  Don't be fooled to believe that a rural practice is restrictive   - we provide a wide range of services to various national and international clients due to specific expertise offered.

 

My career started with Eskom in Rustenburg and I was deployed in Schweizer-Reneke after obtaining a national diploma in surveying.   I put all on the line by resigning to attend university on a full-time basis.  After graduation (cum laude) I did my articles with the Kwazulu-Natal Government in Ulundi and eventually joined a private practice in Empangeni.  Thereafter I joined Water Affairs in Pretoria where I worked for 10 years.

 

After a short stint at MHP Geomatics in Centurion the family settled in Lydenburg in September 2008 when we established the company Coetsee Nel Incorporated.

 

Again, all was put on the line when we decided to go at it alone from January 2015.

 

We  continue a long and proud history of land surveyors that have been involved  and committed to proving survey services dedicated to the Lydenburg region specifically.  However, our range has increased significantly and includes Hoedspruit specifically.

 

Much have changed over the years as surveying has generally become easier, and legislation more complex.  The traditional land surveying service was extended and improved to provide a comprehensive property development service that is based on modern technologies and principles whilst being professionally sound.

 

Development is much more than surveying...it is a complex process full of pitfalls and risks.  We now also offer civil commercial mediation services as an alternative dispute resolution option - when things go bad!
