The new owners of the property next to mine say that the fence between our two properties is in the wrong location and must be moved
Can you help me?
The Assessor/Clerk-Recorder has no authority to and cannot: A) Give anyone legal advice; B) Determine the actual ground location of any property boundaries or corner marks of a parcel; or C) Prepare deeds or read/write land descriptions for property owners.
Property line disputes are private civil matters that can only be settled by the affected property owners, and their land surveyors, attorneys and, if necessary, ultimately a court of law.
However, if, and when, the location of any parcel's boundary lines are legally established, then, if notified, the Assessor will review the information and update all affected assessment maps and records accordingly.
