Re: How to determine property line?


Thanks for all your replies, everyone. Just an update: I asked a surveyor for an estimate, and he said $1,000 to $1,500. 8A8 *crying shocked face* I'm still waiting to see if any other surveyor will give me an estimate. I also asked my neighbor to give my number to his landlord, since my neighbor isn't the one to make decisions about the fence...and his landlord hasn't called me yet. Now I'm waiting to encounter my neighbor again so I can ask for his landlord's number and call him instead.

Re: How to determine property line?


Update: I got my neighbor's permission to build a privacy fence between our houses in a straight line going back from where the jog out in front is--no need for a survey. I said we don't need to know where the property line is so long as we just both agree to this arrangement.

Now my task is to figure out how to make the fence easily removable or openable so, after it's built, I can still access my exterioir wall for maintenance. Chain link panels was a good idea, but now that my neighbor wants a privacy fence, I'm thinking white vinyl instead.

I don't think building a fence so close to my wall will violate egress standards for the bedroom window on that wall. But if I can set the fence back just a touch farther without upsetting my neighbor, that's what I want to do.

I also have to figure out how to landscape the back fence line now since they have large bushs planted right along the "property line", making it impossible to actually build a fence all the way back without some MAJOR shrub relocation, which I don't want to do. I already have to move one shrub to put the fence where I want it. I'm not a fan of shrubs. :/
