How can I find my plat of survey?
The first place to check would be in your closing papers from when you purchased your home. If you did not receive one, you may want to check with the bank that holds your mortgage.
The City does not typically receive a plat unless the home is new construction (2002-current).
If you are unable to locate your survey, you may want to have a new survey performed. Typical costs are about $500, and can be completed by any Land Surveyor company.
A plat of survey is a private document between the seller and purchaser of a home, so be sure to keep your survey in a safe and secure place.
