“Where is my property line?”
“Is that my fence?”
“Is that a joint driveway or is it mine?”
These are common questions from land-owners that in many cases don’t have an easy answer. As surveyors, we are charged with offering an opinion as to the location of a parcel boundary line based on the description within the deed and evidence as located in the field.
The detailed analysis of field evidence (monuments), deed descriptions and record evidence all contribute to the location marked in the field representing the parcel line. That information is often used to place improvements on a parcel, or serve as evidence in civil proceedings regarding title disputes or boundary agreements. GDI has decades of survey records to assist in the process of boundary retracements (stake surveys), easements, and parcel divisions.
