Re: Police Not Honoring My Land Survey, They Told Me to Get
especially given the argument they could not verify the lot line, they had no authority to tell you to remove the fence. The problem: it is difficult for the police to deal with situations such as this as there is no real established lot line and the cop is not going to attempt to read a survey and figure out where it is.
So, put up the fence. If neighbor damages it, plan on suing him in civil court. You might have to have the surveyor come back out and determine if the fence is on your property and make notes to reflect such. Once you have proof of the fence being on your property, winning in civil court should be a slam dunk. Once the surveyor notes the location of the fence, the police should also enforce the property line and any claimed issues based on it.
