A New Practice Model - Part 1

Featuring: Jeffery N. Lucas, JD, PLS, Esq.
APPROVED for 2.0 NY LS/PE CE Hours

 

The land surveying profession has a broken practice model. Simply staking the client's deed and calling it a day is no longer acceptable - not for the profession or for the public surveyors are licensed to protect. This program examines the problems with the current practice model of simply finding the problems with the property lines of the client and adjoiners that are easily solved through proper retracement theory and the application of the appropriate boundary law principles.

A New Practice Model - Part 2

Featuring: Jeffery N. Lucas, JD, PLS, Esq.
APPROVED for 2.0 NY LS/PE CE Hours

 

This program explores the framework of a new practice model that allows the land surveyor to become problem solvers, not just a problem finders. Solving problems, proper retracement theory and application of the appropriate boundary law principles will afford the land surveying profession to not only survive but to thrive well into the 21st century.

8:30am - 10:30am

Title Insurance & Boundary Surveys - Part 1
Featuring: Jeffery N. Lucas, JD, PLS, Esq.
APPROVED for 2.0 NY LS/PE CE Hours

 

 

The two most important documents relative to the ownership of property may be the Title Insurance Policy and the Boundary Survey. But what do these documents actually do for the property owner? What does the title policy actually cover and what doesn't it cover? Does the survey of the property create any assurances for the landowner? This program will answer these and other important questions that the land surveyor may not know the answer to, or understand the impact they have on the practice of surveying property boundaries.

Title Insurance & Boundary Surveys - Part 2
Featuring: Jeffery N. Lucas, JD, PLS, Esq.
APPROVED for 2.0 NY LS/PE CE Hours

 

 

The two most important documents relative to the ownership of property may be the Title Insurance Policy and the Boundary Survey. Most surveyors are unaware of the connection between the boundary survey and title insurance. The ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys and the Detailed Requirements are designed for the purpose of removing the "survey exception" as an exclusion from coverage. What are the ramifications to the land surveyor when the exception is removed? This course examines these and other important practice issues.
