Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I determine where my property lines are?

Building and Safety does not have any information or maps showing the location of property lines. Property lines can only be accurately located by having your property surveyed. For more information, and to verify the license of a surveyor, please refer to the California Board for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors website.
