Is it possible to change your property line? I would like to purchase a portion of my neighbors backyard in order to make my own backyard larger.

Simon,

Purchasing a portion of the adjacent lot will require that a replat of the two lots is done to show the new property lines. You will need to have a surveyor prepare the replat and it will have to be signed by both property owners. It is also important to keep in mind that all lots have a minimum lot depth requirement. This requirement varies depending upon the zoning district the lots are located in. The lot being reduced in length will still need to meet the minimum lot depth.

I was also considering this but width not depth. Do you know the approximate cost to do this.. Can any surveyor do this? Does the city need to and when/how do they approve it?

Brian,

We do not keep information on approximate costs as there can be small things that may up the cost of a survey. Any registered surveyor in the State of Texas can do the plat as long as they stamp and seal the documents. The replat of the two lots will then go to the Planning & Zoning Commission for their final approval. Most replats take approximately 30 days from the date of application until they appear before the Commission.

Simon,

As we work with a large number of surveyors throughout the Metroplex City staff can not recommend one company over another. If you wish you can go to the City's website and the Planning & Development page and look at the recent submittals to get an idea of the various firms that work or have worked in Frisco.
