Where is my property line?
Property boundaries are originally identified, recorded, and marked with irons at each corner, or change in line direction, at the time a parcel or lot is platted. A three-quarter inch diameter iron pipe with a plastic cap is commonly used as an iron marker. Sometimes the irons are destroyed during grading and construction activities and cannot be located. Property line measurements can be found on the Dakota County website.

Dimensions shown on the Dakota County GIS page are rounded off and generally accurate within the nearest foot or two. Using the recorded information and a metal locator (iron), it is often possible to find existing iron markers to determine property lines. The other option is to hire a licensed land surveyor to locate and mark your property lines.
