The material in this question and answer series is for your information only. It is not legal advice and is not designed to be used in place of legal advice. You should consult your own attorney for legal advice. The St. Joseph Legal Department provides this series to provide a general summary of procedures concerning violations of city ordinances in the City of St. Joseph, Missouri.

Where is my property line located?
The best way to locate your property lines is to hire a licensed land surveyor who can provide you with a boundary survey drawing and/or mark your actual lot corners. The Department of Public Works and Transportation has unofficial records that indicate lot lines, easements, City right-of-way and location of City sewer. Additional private easements should be detailed on your property title. However, we will not be able to show you where the road or your building is located within the right-of-way.
