How are property corners marked?
Typically, the corners are marked with a 2-3 foot long piece of steel rebar (rebar comes in different diameters and lengths and is used to reinforce concrete). The builder’s surveyor drives the rebar into the ground at the exact property corner and a cap is placed on top (as shown in the picture above).
What represents a property corner in surveying?
It is a solid iron rod that is typically placed flush with the ground. When a survey monument is set by a surveyor, it must have a cap placed on the rebar which has the company name and license number stamped into it.
How do I find the GPS coordinates of a property corner?
From an Android device:
- Open the Google Maps app.
- Zoom in to your property’s location.
- Tap and press your property’s location until a red pin appears. (It must be a point that isn’t already labeled).
- The GPS coordinates will appear in the search box at the top of the map.

What to do if Neighbor moves surveyor’s pin?
You might want to request that your neighbor have a surveyor verify the common property boundary before installing a fence or blacktopping the driveway. If the neighbor encroaches on your property, you can require the paving to be removed or the fence relocated.
Can a neighbor take you to court for adverse possession?
This is the very definition of adverse possession. Remember that your neighbor has a lot on the line here. Losing that part of his land might significantly impact his property value, and because of that, he might actually take you to court.
Where are the boundary pins on a house?
We had a house built and when the property was surveyed, metal boundary pins were put in. We knew where every pin was. My father would even scrape the mud off after it would rain so we could always find them.
Is the boundary pin still there after trenching?
We called to complain and they passed us off to the subcontractor who did the trenching. The subcontractor said the boundary pin was not there when they trenched. This is absolutely wrong. Even the two neighboring houses knew it was there. Their houses were being constructed the same time as ours. You can still see where the trenching was done.
