How Do I Determine My Property Lines?

Guidance only.  Call KLJ Engineering at 352-1555 for a property survey.


This method is based on landmarks available to the common person, is limited in its accuracy and should be used only as a guideline. Checking with neighboring property owners may provide more accurate landmarks from surveys and other more reliable sources. 
The City shall assume no responsibility for the accuracy of property lines determined by this method. 

Determining legal property lines for cases of disputes should be done by a registered surveyor.

Begin by measuring the back of curb to back of curb width of the nearest street parallel to the property line you wish to find. In most cases this width should be 37'. Whatever the number determined, it should be divided by two to find the center of the street. Starting from the center of the street measure 33' or as otherwise indicated on the enclosed map to establish the starting point for measuring. This will usually be 14-14.5' from the curb and on the back of the sidewalk were present. For yard depth measure the distance indicated on the map to find the rear property line. For side property lines measure across neighboring properties, the distance indicated on the map.
