Oklahoma Society of Land Surveyors urges property owners to proceed with caution when constructing a fence.

There is no requirement to have property surveyed before installing a fence, but Burk Cornelius, executive director of the Oklahoma Society of Land Surveyors in Edmond, urges homeowners to proceed with caution.
"A fence contractor will install a fence wherever the homeowner wants it,” Cornelius said. "If your improvement is on someone's property, it's an encroachment, and that's not good. Be careful even if taking down an old fence and putting up a new one. The older the fence is, it often means even more of a need to have a survey.”
