a. Tobyhanna Township does not require plots to be surveyed before sale. If you call us, we can check our records to see if we have a survey of your residence. If we don’t, we do have a program that can show us the plot plan of your property, though they are not exact.
b.Tobyhanna Township was surveyed in the 1950’s, and the surveyors used wooden or rebar stakes to mark property lines. If you can find these stakes, you’ve found the corners of your property.
c.If none of the above options are viable, contacting a surveyor is another option, but it will be at your expense. Tobyhanna Township is not responsible for any costs associated with contacting a surveyor.
