- To Find Property Lines - Permanent corner iron monuments should be located below the sod level, in the ground of each legally divided parcel of land in Corcoran. Locating the corner iron monuments is the responsibility of the property owner. The corner iron monument can be found by using a certificate of survey and a metal detector, or contact a registered land surveyor to locate and expose the monuments or replace any missing pins.
