A Corner Record is a document that determines where the physical placements of property corner monuments (also known as corner staking) are to be placed; the document must be prepared by a licensed land surveyor in accordance with the Professional Land Surveyors’ Act.
A Corner Record is required when it has been determined that your property’s boundary corners have already been defined on an existing recorded Record of Survey Map, a Parcel Map or a Tract Map. The Corner Record is submitted to the County Surveyor’s office for review and approval. Upon approval, it is then filed with the County Surveyor’s office.
Note: If property corners have not been defined on an existing recorded Record of Survey Map, a Parcel Map or a Tract Map, then a Record of Survey Map will be required.
