Does the City settle lot line disputes between neighbors?

No. Lot line disputes must be treated as a civil matter where disputing neighbors may ultimately pursue the services of their family attorneys and take the case before a judge. A judge might order a survey to be conducted. The City does not conduct surveys is disputes between neighbors.

However, until a lot line dispute is settled, the City may withhold the issuance of a building permit for a structure that might, arguably, be constructed on another person’s property.
