Can my neighbor and I simply agree on the location of the boundary?

A: Property boundaries that are not well known and well demarcated can lead to confusion about boundary locations—especially when an existing survey plan is unavailable. In situations like this, it is recommended that you and your neighbour engage a licensed land surveyor. Surveyors employ rigorous procedures for retracing the location of boundaries between properties based on the physical evidence and historical records. Establishing the legal boundary is important to avoid potentially expensive disputes in the future.
