Ambiguities I



Ambiguities I – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Gaudreau v. Harder, Massachusetts 2001. In this edition we see how ambiguous deeds must be interpreted through the extrinsic evidence that points to the true intent of the conveyance. In this case, the most compelling extrinsic evidence was the testimony of the landowners. This is testimony that is often ignored by the land surveyor. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 7 pages. This 9-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.

OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
