Deeds & Property Lines

How can I determine my property line?

  1. 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. The township planning/zoning department can provide a print out that shows the dimensions of your front, back, and side property lines. That information can also be found on your deed. If you do not have a copy of, or cannot find your deed, contact the Lancaster County Recorder of Deeds at (717) 299-8238.
