Hello all, I have a question regarding how to properly place a boundary corner/line based on an issue I found in the field. Let's say I am retracing a subdivision and am hired to mark the existing monuments or set new ones on the exterior boundary of the subdivision. While conducting my field searches I have discovered that the some of the ORIGINAL monuments for this subdivision were set further apart from each other than they were called for on the plat and one or two of them are actually set over onto another already platted property by about half a foot. Would you set a new monument? Call the original monument(s) that are encroaching over the senior line as being out of the true position by the half a foot but not set a new monument? Hold the monument as the true corner of the subdivision? Etc... I know what I would do but I am still a junior surveyor and would really like to get some senior LS guys opinions or thoughts on the situation. Thanks so much!
