Description: Practitioners often encounter situations where occupation exists on or near the boundary. The session will explain and discuss the analysis, reporting, use, and importance of lines of possession when providing surveying services to reestablish the location of boundaries. The session will discuss doctrines that cause the occupation lines to be the lines of ownership.
