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. 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. There will be an update on legal interpretations of surveys by Massachusetts courts and on the ever-popular topic of surveyor liability.
