    Default Fence position surveyor marks?

    I have an old fence that has to be replaced.

    The properly next door has been surveyed recently and there is a surveyor marker at the back near the boundary.
    It looks like in the picture.

    There is a post knocked in with a label 1m O/S and a smaller peg next to it with a nail on it.
    I presume the nail head is the actual marker.

    But, does the 1m O/S mean 1 m offset to the side of the property boundary?

    If so, then this fence is 11" or 275mm too far to my side, which is quite a lot.

    During the fence replacement, should it be moved to be 1m off that marker?


    Can these markers be trusted to be correct?

    I don’t know a lot about survey marks but I do know if they can’t put a marker in the exact spot they will put a marker in to refer to the actual mark.

    Try the Property Chat forum - they might have the answer.

    Why was the property next door surveyed ?
    If there was building renovation the mark may be related to it or buried services.
