Contracts – Standardized Contract

Contracts – The Standardized Contract for Land Surveying Services: Half Day or Full Day (Nominally 4.0 or 8.0 Contact Hours)
Surveyors often tell me that either they cannot make any money performing boundary surveying or they don’t have enough money to do the job right. The reality is that both of these issues are easily solved with a written contract. Surveyors need standardized contracts for performing boundary surveying services that described what will be done for the client (and not), provide an estimate for services, a contingency clause for unforeseen circumstances, that address guarantees and warranties, a termination clause and defined contract remedies. Basic project budgeting and contract law for professional services will be examined. A Standardized Contract for Land Surveying Services will be developed. 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.
