We completed a property survey in Wellesley with stakeout recently. The homeowners wanted their land surveyed prior to putting up a fence, something which we see pretty frequently. When installing a fence or other structure on or close to the property line, it’s definitely a good idea to have your property surveyed first. In the case of this Wellesley land survey, the homeowners were surprised to find that a line of trees which appeared to be on the property line actually was not. In fact, the property line extended three feet beyond the line of trees, giving the homeowners significantly more land than they had first believed.
