I had a company perform a survey on our house/property.
They marked the 4 sides and their property lines. They marked the 4
fences, and their relationship to the property lines (how far off they
When they measured the back property line of the house, they indicated
that the fence was right on top of the property line - and it was
straight. I built a shed (10x15) and measured off 6ft off of this
fence for squareness (because the survey said it was perfect).
After almost finishing the shed, i started looking at the fence as I
will be replacing it - and noticed it's actually far off from being on
the property line - and is crooked. When I put the new fence in, it's
going to make the shed appear crooked, and will shorten the distance
between the shed and the property fence by more than a foot on one
side, taking it out of code (making it 4 .5 feet from the fence).
I built the shed based on their measurements - they said they will
come out and resurvey... but shouldn't they be responsible for the
shed being off/out of code?
Thanks for any insights, folks. oh - this is norfolk, va
