How do I locate the boundary lines for my property?

A survey is the best way to determine the boundary lines of a lot. Look for surveyor stakes or boundary markers.  A plat map and legal descriptions help, too. Often neighbors know where the boundaries are located. For more information, call the Building Inspection Department at 651-739-5150.
