This wide-ranging informative discussion is a must for surveyors. Surveyors are the critical component of any transaction involving land, whether it is a conveyance, a zoning application, or litigation over an easement, boundary, or public way.  Learn about recent legal interpretations of surveys by Massachusetts courts to better understand how your survey defines rights and creates value.  Explore the elements of legal claims involving surveyor negligence and misrepresentation to insulate yourself from risk.
The panel will address many topics that will enable you to create a more effective survey which may help parties avoid litigation or prevail on disputed claims.
What You Will Learn:

    * Familiarize yourself with leading cases from 2011 on adverse possession and easements
    * Learn about the unique rules for use of surveys in zoning matters
    * Understand the ins and outs of surveyor liability in Massachusetts
