NCAP's holdings of aerial photography span 80 years, which makes them a vital tool in litigation, to prove property boundaries.
Between the 1930's and the present day, many locations across the UK are covered by NCAP aerial photography at multiple dates. These photographs can potentially demonstrate access and boundary conditions on precise dates. Our precisely-dated original photographs can provide evidence of the construction or demolition of buildings and extensions, providing evidence for legal professionals and home-owners. Our Letter of Authenticity can be used to show the provenance of an image, and assist in proving a case.
