Surveying Your Lot For Property Lines

Posted on April 22, 2020 at 8:15 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  How do I get my lot surveyed to know the exact location of my property lines to build a fence?

A.  The only way to know your exact property boundary is to have your property surveyed by a licensed surveyor. If it’s possible your property was previously surveyed, you can look for corner pins--metal stakes driven into the ground. If you locate all the corners you can determine your property lines that way as well. For some lots, especially older ones, finding all property pins may be difficult.
