A monument in real estate refers to a fixed object or structure that is used to mark the boundaries of a property. Monuments can include things like walls, fences, stakes, or natural features like trees or rocks.
A property surveyor may use monuments like stakes or iron pins to indicate the exact location of a property line. These monuments are typically placed at the corners of the property, and they help to ensure that the property boundaries are clearly defined and accurately recorded.

A monument, oh what a sight,
It marks the spot, and keeps things right!
A fence, a stake, or rock so grand,
All help to show where you can stand.
When you need to know where your land ends,
A monument can be quite a friend.
It marks the spot so you can see,
And tells you where you can and can't be.
So if you ever need to know,
Where your land starts and where it'll go,
Just look for a monument so true,
It'll guide the way, for me and you!
