Course Description

Easements are a major source of liability for surveyors. This workshop will cover those aspects of ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys that deal with easements. In particular, this workshop will cover an analysis of the various sections covering easements, weaknesses in the standards, and where the surveyor should be cautious. The workshop will also examine actions the surveyor can take to counsel the client and avoid liability.
