Contract Basics for Land Surveyors
CLSA
Webinar

Presented by Landon Blake, Redefined Horizons

 

Many land surveyors assume contracts are a black box they aren’t supposed to understand. That isn’t true! You shouldn’t be signing a contract you don’t understand. In this webinar, Landon will cover basics of business contracts for land surveyors. That will include the purpose of a control, the parts of a contract, and the red flags you need to look for when reviewing contracts. Landon will review the language in the CLSA standard contract and will also look at a contract sent by a potential client with major problems. Landon will answer the following questions in the webinar:

 

1. When does a land surveyor need a contract?
2. What belongs in a contract?
3. Do you need a scope-of-services and a mapping limits exhibit in your contract?
4. What is duty to defend language, and why is it important?
5. What should your contract say about digital deliverables?
6. Can you use a contract to limit your liability?
7. How is professional liability insurance related to your contract?
8. What are 3 principles you should follow when reviewing or writing contracts?

A Review of Mandeni v Rabinowitz
CLSA
Webinar

Presented by Landon Blake, Redefined Horizons

 

The California Court of Appeals recently decided a case related to a fence encroachment in Los Angeles. In its decision, the court restores a bit of the sanctity of boundary locations per paper title rather than physical occupation. It also makes it easier for land owners harmed by a physical encroachment to require the removal of that encroachment by the neighbor. In this webinar, Landon reviews the facts of the case and the legal issues it discusses. In the webinar, Landon answers the following questions:

1. What is the difference between a permanent encroachment and a continuing encroachment? Why is understanding the difference important for boundary surveyors?
2. How is the statute of limitations on a nuisance claim impacted by a continuing encroachment?
3. What test can be used to determine if an encroachment is permanent or continuous?
4. What factors need to be considered when calculating the damages of a continuing encroachment?
5. What change in California real estate is the appeals court recognizing in this court decision?
