Practitioners often encounter situations where the client’s possession boundary does not coincide with the record boundaries. Depending upon the circumstances, the possession boundary may become the ownership boundary. In other cases, acts of the party(ies) and surrounding circumstances may locate the boundary that the record alone fails to fix with clarity. The workshop will explain and discuss estoppel, acquiescence, practical location, agreement, adverse possession, and dedication. In addition to a basic understanding of these doctrines, the practitioner will learn what their role and responsibilities are in these cases.

Speaker: Knud E. Hermansen is an attorney, professional engineer, and professional land surveyor licensed in several states.

Professional membership includes the  National Lawyers Association, National Society of  Professional Surveyors, American Society of Civil Engineers, and several state survey societies and bar associations.
