Q: Is there variation of pin distance from original survey boundary line when pins are consistently place by water meter
My Arkansas home is built on a zero lot line. How do I verify the original pin has not been moved during construction
A: What is your question? Apparently your new survey is different from the old. You might contact the surveyors, but if they talk to you they will defend their opinions. Declination might be a factor here, but probably one survey was more precise than the other. If you have a dispute then hire an attorney to file a Boundary Dispute, which is basically a declaratory judgment action.

A: You probably need to examine the adjacent property owners' Deeds. Look for their legal descriptions' common boundaries with you. It might disclose what the neighbors think your boundaries are, and the surveyors may have done this earlier, maybe even using a common metes and bounds. Magnetic Bearing/Declination Years may be a factor.
