Questions 🙂 Not a Surveyor

    Hello! Iƒ??ve been doing a lot of research about property lines after a new neighbor had a survey done of her property. I believe that her surveyor used more convenient corner markers and ignored our stone corner marker next to our shed. The shed has lived on the property for close to 50 years according to our neighbor behind us who built at that time. 
    I appreciate being here!

    Could you post a photo of that stone marker?

    You should try to get a copy of the map that the neighbor’s surveyor prepared.  It should show which monuments he or she found and used to determine the boundary.

    There can be instances where a survey stone applies to a different circumstance than the individual residential lot.

    For example, I can think of a subdivision that was designed such that it fell in all four quarters, partially, of a PLSS section.  The center of section stone existed, but, fell out in the middle of one of the standard lots in a standard block.  Actually, it was in an area used as a garden.  A good friend of mine found the center stone while working on a survey for a tract outside of the subdivision.  He flagged it and wrapped bright survey flagging around it to make it easier to find in the future.  A few years later he needed to tie to that same stone.  The land owner had removed it because it was in his garden and was deemed inconvenient once he knew it was there.  He did not understand the significance.

    Today, after several changes in ownership, the garden is long gone and a standard survey bar can be found at the original location of the stone.

    a standard survey bar can be found at the original location of the stone.

    You sure about that?

     

     


    I hope everyone has a great day; I know I will!

    I believe that her surveyor used more convenient corner markers and ignored our stone corner marker next to our shed.”  What does this mean?  These “convenient markers” are likely in harmony with the area, is your corner the outlier to those used?
