Thank you for the replies and confirmation.
1) For starters, you should have been provided a plat of survey at the time of the real estate closing. Perhaps you can contact the local municipality and a survey plat exists on file where you pay your property taxes or at the title/deed company?
If no survey plat is available from the municipality or title company, I recommend that you contact a local licensed surveyor and have them survey the property and provide you with a drawing showing the property boundaries and dimensions. Also have the surveyor mark the property boundaries with stakes and/or paint to identify the perimeters. Once the survey is drawn up and certified, file the survey with your local tax municipality so it remains on file. Then there will be no discrepancies from your neighbor to complain about. Everything will be legal at this point pertaining to property boundaries. I also recommend that you retain a real estate attorney and have them approve and give their blessing on all plat survey documents.
2) Since 2 separate meters exist, I recommend that you 1st contact the local electrical utility provider and inquire about the process involved to relocate the meter and main switches to your side of the property or you may require a local electrician or both. In most electrical codes across the world, you should have direct access to your meter and switches and they should reside on your side of the property or reside in a common area.
3) In addition to being a licensed electrician, I am also a Certified Construction Manager for residential dwellings as well as a former licensed home inspector. I'll trade you places. I live in the Chicago area. I'd rather be in New Zealand as I've heard it is beautiful there:)
