Township's Ability to Assume Boundary Line
A township issued a zoning permit for an addition to an existing structure in a small lot area on a lake. The drawings and permit assumed that a fence was the proper property line. The structure now has been built, and recently an adjacent land owner conducted a survey. The survey reveals that the fence is not the proper property line. A part of the structure now encroaches on the neighboring property. Is there any case law that supports a township's ability to assume the property boundary as the property owners are treating it?

Until the boundary issue is settled it is not a zoning question. Once settled there may be a zoning issue with the setbacks.
Thank you very much.
