How do I locate my property lines?

The City of Waupaca does not locate property lines.

First, obtain a copy of your property’s legal description (if you don’t have a copy, you may be able to get this from the Waupaca County Register of Deeds located at 811 Harding Street, Waupaca WI, or copy of the plat map for your subdivision. Using this information, try to locate your property pins – iron rods inserted into the ground in each corner of your property (you may need to use a metal detector to find them). Stringing a line (or laying a garden hose) between those pins will give you a fairly accurate idea of where your property lines are.

You may also want to hire a surveyor to determine your property corners and property lines.
