Property Lines


The approximate location of private property lines is a routine request for the engineering division. Residents seeking to construct a garage, a fence, a driveway, etc., will need property line information to satisfy building code regulations. By utilizing data established on engineering records, property lines may be located with reasonable accuracy.

Interpretation of this information is advisory only-the city of Duluth assumes no liability for accuracy. It remains the property owner's responsibility to seek a registered land surveyor for reliable proof of the precise location of property lines.

Construction of a house or similar structure requires a registered survey which must be secured by a registered land surveyor. The city of Duluth does not provide this service.
