How to Resolve Survey, Description and Boundary Issues


Boundary disputes, descriptions, and survey issues are the “bread and butter” of many real estate practices. However, they can be challenging to resolve because alternate legal strategies may result in different outcomes. In addition, because so many of these cases involve relatively small dollar amounts, you will want to learn the most efficient ways to evaluate such claims. Learn what to do when faced with “a line in the sand that threatens to harden into concrete!”

Sessions will focus on:

  • Principles and Conflicts of Land Descriptions 
  • Reading and Understanding Surveys
  • Reviewing Surveys as Part of Title Due Diligence and Drafting Title Objection Letters
  • Resolving Difficult Survey Problems
  • Common Law Doctrines Affecting Boundary Lines
  • Resolving Boundary Issues through Negotiation and Litigation
  • And more!
