Fine How Do You Do
I just finished a survey where four other surveyors had performed work prior to mine. I found several monuments called for in their descriptions. Their distances and mine fit perfectly. I had to replace a missing property corner on the tract I was partitioning from, and I put it perfectly in line with the recovered monuments that were called for in three different surveyor’s descriptions. It was one of those jobs that goes so well you wonder why.
I just got off the phone with the neighbor to the north. This lady’s tract was surveyed by one of the aforementioned surveyors. My measurements were exactly the same as his down to .00 of a foot. She is terribly upset and explains to me that my pin is wrong, because she was told by her “title man” that her line went into my clients driveway. I calmly explained to her the work we performed and the total agreement of her deed and the deeds of the surrounding tracts. She then says, “Well I don’t ever go by what the surveyor says or by the pins they set. I listen to the people who tell me where my line is and I am about to lose it on you…”
Isn’t that a fine how do you do?
