Boundary Interpretations

Determining the location of a parcel of land on the ground requires the surveyor to gather various pieces of evidence. The forms of evidence can come as writings, oral, real, and judicial. After analyzing the evidence, a surveyor uses this information to give his professional opinion of the location of a person’s boundary of ownership or usage.

 

Depositions

A sworn pretrial testimony given by a witness in response to oral or written questions and cross-examination. The deposition is transcribed and may be used for further pretrial investigation. It may also be presented at the trial if the witness cannot be present.

 

A Land description consists of the written words which delineate a specific piece of real property also known as a “Legal Description”. In the written transfer of real property, it is universally required that the instrument of conveyance (deed)) include a written description of the property. DpS can prepare these land descriptions for new parcels or as a corrective deed for a flawed description.

 

Expert Witness / Testimony

A person who is a specialist in a subject, often technical, who may present his/her expert opinion without having been a witness to any occurrence relating to the lawsuit or criminal case. Thus, if scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify in the form of an opinion or otherwise, if (1) the testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data; (2) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods; and (3) the witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case.
