I went out to start the fieldwork on a project a couple weeks ago and while I was out there I found out the neighbor actually had a survey done on his property 12-18 months ago. Pins were set for that survey including on the line common with my client, which I tied, but it has yet to be recorded.
I contacted the surveyor a couple days later to inquire about the status of the survey, because it’s well outside of the recording window at this point. It seems there were some family emergencies and other things going on but the surveyor remembered the project and said they’d try to fast track recording the survey.
It’s been a couple weeks now and I haven’t heard a peep. I told my client I need to wait for this survey to be recorded so I can reference it on my survey and so far he’s been OK with the delay. I would like to get everything wrapped up sooner rather than later though, so I’m kinda wondering what to do next.
Has anyone here run into something like this before? If so, what did you do? I’d rather not record a survey that holds recently set but unrecorded monuments if possible, and I’d rather not rat the person out to the board. The whole situation is new to me.
