Four inches of land may cause a mile of trouble
May 6, 2017 6:00 AM - Q. Several years ago, my neighbor had a survey done before she put up a partial fence on her land. She had her son dig a trench adjacent to a cedar fence I had installed in 1978. It looked as if her trench was on my property, so I had a survey done. The surveyor's rebar marking my property line showed her trench was 4 inches inside my property line.
