How do I find my Property Corners?


Your property corners are typically metal pipes, rods, or rebar.  A metal locator is the best option to find your corners.  There are many types of metal locators and they are not all created equal, so it may be difficult for the untrained to actually find a corner.  Also sometimes a corner has metal obstructions around it that limit the use of the locator.  If you find the corner it may or may not be in the correct position.  It is not uncommon that the corners are in the wrong place.  Someone may have accidentally hit it during excavation and just put it back in the ground “about” where they thought it was.  Or maybe someone just plain moved it to where they thought it should be.  If you hire a Professional Land Surveyor to find your corners they will verify that it is in the correct position.
