RedVector is excited to announce the launch of a brand new, mobile-ready eLearning course on boundary controls and legal principles. This course addresses and enumerates many of the legal principles that control the boundary location of real property.
Land surveyors play a key role in interpreting and implementing these often confusing principles. Guiding you through this course is Patrick C. Garner. Pat is a hydrologist, professional wetland scientist, and multi-state professional land surveyor. He has served as President of the Massachusetts Association of Wetland Scientists, teaches wetland and river workshops, and has published numerous articles on wetland science and ethics. He is a principal of Patrick C. Garner Company, Inc., in Northborough, Massachusetts.
With an emphasis on adverse possession, the course examines legal principles, including prescriptive easements, estoppel, acquiescence, practical location and unwritten agreements. It further explores conditional boundary lines and parol agreements, which are part of unwritten agreements. From these principles the course develops protocols for the professional to follow when encountering difficult situations. It also lists key references to use when a good boundary line solution is seemingly out of reach. The course emphasis is on the surveyor as a professional, as one who uses well-established principles of law to knowledgeably resolve boundary disputes and unexpected challenges.
By the end of this RedVector course, students will be able to
recall a brief history and origin of this land description system; define metes and bounds for professional land surveyors and engineers; list the basic minimum requirements of a metes and bounds description; state the importance of exceeding minimum description requirements; list best practice benefits that accrue to you and your client; and identify best practice elements of a superior metes and bounds description.
