Notes to Limit Liability

N/A for CE


Surveyors often have a need to include limitation notes in their contracts, on their plats, and in their survey reports. Unfortunately, many surveyors do not formulate their limitation notes in a manner that will effectively reduce their liability exposure. This webinar will explain how to formulate and prepare effective limitation notes.


Seminar Goals and Objectives

  1. Define the three parts to a limitation note.
  2. Identify where indemnification is appropriate.
  3. Identify where and what wording can be placed that will reduce liability.
