Hello... I'm new here and I'm not even sure if I'm in the right place but I'm looking to get some help with regarding home porperty boundaries. For starter I live in Brampton, Onatrio Canada . Can anyone direct me were I might get the help I need? I have a neighbor from hell that rents her home. I trying to get our fence redone since the fence is pretty much shot/finish. It hard to reach this owner since the renter are of no use either. Any ways this spring we had soome bad storms causing are fence to collapse . I been trying to get it fixed but can't get the neighbor in on the repairs. So now I am left I assuming going to the city over it, yes ? Also, what I want is prove where my porperty boundaries are beforehand to be sure before I do anything, any help would be much appreciated, thanks

Oh, by the way if this is an none Canadian forum site please just delete my account. I believe I need to locate the correct area

The city might have a survey on record for your property. Sometimes they put iron pins in the ground to mark the property lines, and sometimes the pins are still there after the owners have finished their landscaping. Worst case is you might have to hire a surveyor to mark the property line. You may want to go to one or two of the bigger fence companies in your area and discuss this with them. They must come across this all the time (although they likely leave it to the homeowner to define where they want their fence).

The only to be sure where the property line is located is a survey.

On your deed you will have location plan . you should have one .
this is what they look like

Location plan




A location plan is a supporting document that may be required by a planning authority as part of a planning application. This may be in addition to a site plan and/or a block plan.

A location plan provides an illustration of the proposed development in its surrounding context. This enables the planning authority to properly identify the land to which the application refers, and is typically based on an up-to-date Ordnance Survey (or similar) map.

A location plan should use an identified standard metric scale, typically 1:1250 or, for larger sites, 1:2500, and generally fits onto an A4 size sheet when printed. It is important that the plan indicates the direction of North, to make its orientation clear.

The plan will typically illustrate the following:

A location plan is different to a site plan which is specifically focused on providing more detail of the development within the site boundaries, or a block plan which may give a slightly wider illustration of the immediate area surrounding the site.

In the US, in many locations, there is a setback area from the road. Many places also have a height limit on fences, some even limit what kind. You need to talk to someone at your city government to find out what you can and can't do.

Once you determine where the property line is, then figure out who owns the current fence. If it's on your property, it is most likely your fence. A good general hint is if the posts on on your side of the fencing material, it is likely that it is yours. Even if it turns out that the fence is not yours, the simplest way to go is to put up your own fence regardless of the old fence. They can be as close to each other as the property line allows.
