Default I need a property surveyor. Any suggestions?

I have a neighbor who is about to build a fence and I'm almost 100% sure that he's about to build on my property. There is an incision in the cement and that is what the city uses to assess the property line between homes according to him. It makes sense but also sounds like a lot of bullshit. The only problem is that it's about 5" from my flower bed and about 7 feet away from the side of my house, which seems awful close to call that his property.

In addition to that, the fucker mowed about a foot away behind from where he is about to put the fence up so he is aware or so it seems. He's trying to get this fence up STAT and I'm not about to let it happen if he's on my property.

I live in a cul-de-sac and I'm the first house when you turn in. He's the house on the corner, so the back of his home faces the side of my home if that makes sense, so he doesn't have a particularly huge yard.

Called the city of Shawnee and they said that it is actually a civil matter.

Was able to find somebody yesterday and they are coming tomorrow. I took a picture as well as a street map image print out and emailed it to them and from their perspective just by looking at the pictures and the printout that they are also pretty sure that he is a couple feet over within my property.

When building homes they cut a slit in the curb to mark the property lines. Normally you cant build within 4-6 feet of the property line. I know my garage is exactly 6 feet from the property line, which was marked by the cuts in the concrete.

Interested to hear if the surveyor says anything different.

Also if he gets the fence up and its on your property he will have to take it down or get fined until he does take it down.

Let him put up his fence, then get a surveyor to come out. Let him pay to move it and repair your yard if he does. It doesn't sound like he is being cordial about this matter.

PM'd you Scooby.

The neighbor has his wooden posts up. And it's damn close to the side of my house. I'm not very tall, but I bet that if I stretched out my arms and legs, I could touch his fence and the side of my house.

The chisel mark on the curb does mark the line, but because of right of way issue that is not where the property really starts. Usually it is 11 to 16 feet from the back of curb to the first real property corner. Problem is, is that when we drive the front ones in, they are usually all pulled out during the installation of utilities/sidewalks, so you will need a surveyor to find that point. In the back there should be a 1/2 rebar in the ground with a cap on it. But the back lot lines could jog and there be another bar very close to that one. As stupid as it sounds, I have seen them with in three inches of each other. In a culdesac, it happens all the time.

Technically I think most cities have a deal where they need a permit to build a fence which usually includes a drawing plan from a surveyor that the builder of the fence supplies. Post a pic of your plot from city hall. They should have a plan that was submitted when your house was built for the building permit. Should look something like this.
