Boundary Surveyor – Half Day or Full Day (Nominally 4.0 or 8.0 Contact Hours)
This seminar is designed to take a look at the duties and responsibilities of the boundary surveyor. How those duties and responsibilities have been described in the past, how they are different today and how they will be different in the future. Recent court cases indicate that the boundary surveyor’s duties and responsibilities, like the law, are ever changing and evolving. Along with these changes has come increased liability for the boundary surveyor. Today, surveyors are being held liable for incorrect boundary determinations. In addition, surveyors are being held liable for torts that they commit along the way. Once it was considered good practice to stake the clients deed and “let the chips fall where they may.” In the modern-day boundary dispute case, this practice is more likely to start a boundary dispute as resolve one and when the chips fall the surveyor is likely to have to account for his or her fair share of them. Power Point presentation.
OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
