Did you ever get that security fence installed? If you did, I was wondering if you could give me a contractor recommendation. My chain link fence doesn't even keep stray dogs out of the yard. It is definitely time to beef up my perimeter.
Ask your real estate agent to get this info for you if any is available. It is likely that you will have to have an inspection done once you get a contract on the house you like.

You real estate agent or attorney can order it for you. If you are just considering it then you could request a copy of a previous one from the current owner. If they are unable to come up with it, you can try stopping by the township office. I have often been able to retrieve a copy this way by filling out a form and paying a small fee. Be aware that this is simply a copy from a previous owner and may not reflect additions or changes to the dwelling, fence lines etc. If you are just trying to take a look at the lay of this proposed plot you can also request a copy of the tax record from your local realtor or township office. It's also cool to check it out on google earth! Best of luck to you!
