Duties & Responsibilities II



Duties & Responsibilities II – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Daley v. Gruber, Michigan Supreme Court 1960. This is a classic case of surveyors moving boundary lines in supposed obedience to proper procedure and precise measurements. However, property boundaries are rarely precise and sometimes become established on the ground in ways that often assault the sensibilities of the land surveyor. “Difficulty arises when the prescriptions in deeds of conveyance must be applied to the land itself. Uncertainties that too often are left unresolved at the time of conveyance give birth to bitter dispute. Boundaries designated by the parties on the ground often conflict with boundaries described in their deeds.” Where do the surveyor’s duties and responsibilities lie in these difficult situations? This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 5 pages. This 7-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the attached case.
