Property Line

The property line outlines the boundaries of a given piece of land. The property line typically defines the land among adjacent private landowners or between a landowner and government-owned land. At times, disputes arise between owners as to the boundaries between two parcels. This happens most often when temporary or movable markers are used in establishing the boundaries of a parcel of land. In this event, the services of a professional surveyor can research the land records, locate any monuments marking off the boundaries, or establish and place monuments when they are missing or damaged. Once this is done, a new survey is created. This is a document that outlines the measurements of the property lines and notes the number and type of monuments or markers found and placed on the property.
