Setting posts for pole barn

We are putting up a pole barn and want to know if anyone has suggestions of a quick and easy solution of how to make sure that when we drill the holes for the posts it is straight against the property line. There is currently a fence on the property line but has been damaged over the years and is no longer stright.

First to find your property you should have a survey. Second better check with you local building department, in many jurisdictions you are required to build with a setback from the property line. The setback may be any where from inces to several feet.
