Q.  Deed/Property Lines: How do I obtain a copy of my deed or find out where my property lines are located?
A.  If you do not have a copy of or cannot find your deed, contact the Lancaster County Recorder of Deeds at (717) 299-8238. If you need to know exactly where your property lines are, your deed will, in most cases, give you the legal description. Sometimes the surveyor pins, stakes, or markers can be found. If they can’t be located, then a surveyor is needed to locate your property line. The township cannot recommend a surveyor. Click here for more information.
