What Is An Easement and How Can One Be Created?

Reconnaissance: The Surveyor's Roles & Responsibilities Part 3
In the first two installments of this series, we looked at the background of the problem that boundary surveyors face and, more often than not, propagate. That misfortune is this: the irony of surveyors (1) ostensibly doing their job by retracing record descriptions and yet, in the process ....

The Curt Brown Chronicles:1967 ACSM Report
