Tie Back Agreements

Tiebacks are drilled into the ground with a small diameter tree diameter and are usually installed at an angle of 15 to 45 degrees. [2] [3] They can be drilled directly into a pile of soldiers or through an intermediate stage installed between successive piles. Grouted Tiebacks can be designed as steel bars pierced in the ground or in the bottom rock on the other side through a concrete wall. The grout is then pumped under pressure into the retaining anchor holes to increase ground resistance and prevent tiebacks from removing, reducing the risk of destabilization of the walls. Neighbouring owners should not simply grant permission to the developer without obtaining anything. Depending on the circumstances, the owner of the neighbouring land should be compensated financially in exchange for granting these rights to the developer. The neighbouring owner should also have other protective measures in place to minimize the risk of damage to his property. These types of agreements can be long and very detailed. With all condos and construction developments in the greater Toronto area, neighbouring owners are often approached by the developer who wishes to enter into a tieback and crane contract with them.

These types of agreements give the developer permission to drill under a neighbouring lot to install tiebacks or nail polishes in crushed concrete on a neighbouring land. This benefits the developer because it can build the basis of their development cheaper and faster. In addition, the developer may apply for permission to operate a crane swing over neighbouring land. However, the owners are not allowed to do so unless the neighbouring owner grants them permission. Remember, you own the soil and rocks under your property, as well as the air rights above your property. As construction progresses, there are a few topics you need to observe. The rating should be carried out in accordance with the approved town planning plan. Fences, curbs and entrances that are removed or damaged must be restored by paying for your land limits. If there is an underground car park, you may need to enter into a “binding” agreement with the developer to properly support your soil and structures. Your Ontario Country Surveyor can help you with these issues, including the location of the final fence. During installation, tiebacks are tested and usually pre-installed.
