Recommendations from a land surveyor for fencing a property line in North Carolina.

Glaspy Land Surveying in North Carolina generally recommends that property owners follow these guidelines when fencing their property line:

  1. Have a professional land survey done to accurately determine the property boundaries.

  2. Check with local zoning and building codes to ensure that the fencing is allowed and meets any necessary requirements. Be conscious of height restrictions for the fence in your specific zone or HOA rules.

  3. Choose a fence that is appropriate for the property's intended use and local climate.

  4. Install the fence on your property, being sure to leave room on both sides for maintaining the fence and the property, such as mowing. Note that if you choose to build the fence ON the property line, be aware the fence may become a common fence which also belongs to your neighbor. It's best to avoid installing a fence on your neighbor's property or on the property line.

  5. Communicate with your neighbors before installing a fence that will affect their property or view.

  6. Maintain the fence in good condition and repair any damage to prevent disputes with neighbors.
