Unable to find a surveyor for the past 9 months!

  • Unable to find a surveyor for the past 9 months!

    To the surveyor community:

    I am posting on behalf of my 92-year-old mother.  I am new to this forum and am very grateful to post my question here!  

    My next door neighbor built a fence on their property that restricts access to my mother’s property.  The neighbor disagrees.  The only way to settle the dispute is to get the property bounds (< 0.5 acre plot) officially surveyed.  This property is in Cumberland County, North Carolina.  I have called over 10 surveyors and only 2 returned my call.  One told me he was too busy and to call back in 3 months – I did call back but he did not return my call.  The other surveyor was very nice and told me there is a severe surveyor shortage (this was back in September 2022) and he is no longer taking new non-commercial jobs.  I thought maybe there was some post-COVID back-orders that needed to be cleared and that I would just have to be patient.  However, it is now July and surveyors are still not returning my call.

    I fear the neighbor may be planning more infringements on my mother’s property.  I am posting here in the hope that someone has some light to shed on how I can get this job done ASAP.  Any advice and recommendations are greatly appreciated!
