When starting a fence project it is vital to know that the proposed fence will be on your property. This is important to you, the town officials and your neighbors.
1.If you already have an up-to-date property survey, it may have enough detail to locate your property corners, where you may find or can place stakes. This will help you discern your property lines.
2. If you do not have current valid property survey, you will have to hire a Land Surveying Company to create one and that will usually require your property deed.
For your protection, it is recommended to make sure your fence contractor has Workman’s Compensation as well as Liability Insurance. Many towns require this.
