It is often times assumed that a fence is the actual boundary line between two properties, but in some cases that isn’t the truth. The fence may have been constructed on the boundary line or some distance from the line (non-boundary fence). It’s important to understand the limits of one’s property, especially before constructing a fence or other man-made improvements. A fence location map could be conducted during a boundary survey to determine the location of the fence in relationship to the boundary lines, as well as delineating any easements or rights of way. It’s important to note that in some cases the fence is not exactly on the boundary line and should not be relied upon for setback purposes during construction.
