Actual e-mail I received today
it illegal for a homeowner to pound pins and markers into where they
"think" a property line is rather than hiring a surveyor? They are
trying to say that their guess is "close enough" and that their markers
they're pounding in will be the property line. This is mountain
property, not surveyed in many years, but few pins can be found. The
ones that can't be found, so they guessed.
I don't agree with it
but don't know how to stop them without high court costs. I'm hoping
their attempt to set pins might be illegal and I can stop them by
notifying them of that and encouraging them to hire a surveyor.
