Field Work—Finding Monuments
- 939 Downloads
The first order of business when the surveyor goes into the field on a new survey is to find the monuments that will control the locations of boundaries. These monuments could be street monuments which fix the location of street lines. They could be monuments called for in the client’s deed. They could be monuments called for in the deeds of abutting properties. If the client’s land is a lot in a subdivision, the monuments could be called for on the subdivision plan.
