Description

Only two persons can truly resolve a disputed boundary or title problem. Those persons do not include attorneys, title companies or surveyors. And, in a sense, they do not even include judges and juries - at least not of their own volition. In this series of tutorials, we will explore the role that the professional surveyor can and arguably should take in helping property owners establish or maintain their common boundary at the location that they were perfectly satisfied with - at least until the surveyor showed up! In this first tutorial, we will look at the role of the surveyor as related to boundaries, not only from a statutory standpoint, but also as eloquently expressed by renowned Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Cooley in his seminal 1881 treatise "The Judicial Function of Surveyors." We will also review several examples that demonstrate the problem and alternatives to what is often the standard approach by surveyors.

• Identify one of the main problems that surveyors face when surveying boundaries
• Describe alternative actions that surveyors can undertake rather than simply telling clients to contact an attorney
