The purpose of this guide is to help you should you need to identify the extent of a site or ownership and responsibility of boundaries.

You may need to identify ownership of a boundary feature because you wish to build on or near to a boundary, or for instance because you are carrying repair works to a fence or wall.

This guide also explains what statutory procedures are available to you should you need to build or excavate near to a boundary or gain access to neighbouring land to repair a wall or fence on your land.
