Can you find your property lines with GPS?
Using the GPS can tell you roughly, where the property pins are located. Regular consumer GPS devices are not accurate enough to determine the exact location of the lines.
The search area will be a few feet large. The accuracy depends on many factors such as the quality of the unit, atmospheric conditions, and signal blockage.
These devices are cool for outdoor activities but they are not accurate enough for this application.
After knowing the approximate location of the markers, you can use a metal detector to pinpoint them.
Visit the website of your local county assessor and use their online map tool. You will find your property lines. Then type in your address in google maps and click on the corners of your property.
You will find two long numbers. These are the GPS coordinates that you are looking for. Enter them into the GPS. This will help you get a rough idea of where the pins are.
Dig Out Your Deed for Additional Info
In older neighborhoods, property owners may have purchased or sold off portions of their yards. Locating a survey pin won’t give you this information, but the most recent legal description recorded on your deed will list any such changes. If you don’t have a copy of your deed filed with your homeowner records, get one at the register of deeds office, often located within your county courthouse.
Visit the Local Zoning Department
The zoning department is the municipal office that records plats: the maps, drawn to scale, that show land division. Unless your home was built more than a hundred years ago, you can probably obtain a copy of your block and lot plat for a minimal fee. This will give you the exact dimensions of your lot—in other words, the property you legally own—in relation to other lot lines on your block.
