Caveat emptor!

Caveat emptor! Translation: Let the buyer beware! Under this doctrine, the buyer could not recover from the seller defects on the property that would render the property unfit for ordinary purposes.

The purchase of an automobile is typically the second most expensive purchase that people make. Prior to shelling out their hard-earned money though,…

What is Land Surveying, a Land Survey, or a Surveyor? Part 3

So last time we did a cursory review of the PLSS and went over the basics of simple legal descriptions.  We start the survey process at the office looking up the original surveys for the area, I’m a history buff so I love reading the original notes, and looking at the original maps. Then we head to the courthouse to research deeds for not just the parcel of land that we…

Do you ever wonder what the pros use to make your computer run right? Well here is a list of a few that I use to make it run better. This is by no means a complete list but it is a good list to get you started and save a few bucks.

AVAST

The BEST antivirus out there in my experience is AVAST. It is fast, stable blocks everything that has ever tried to attack my system and doesn’t slow my computer down like Norton or some of the others. I am not saying the others don’t protect you.…

Understanding technology.. Part 1 of as many as needed.

I have been talking with some of the wonderful folks on here and I think I can help some of you and learn from many of you. I am a computer and network systems engineer and by NO means a surveyor. So what brought me here.. Well when I was in school I worked as a survey tech and construction inspector for about 5 years and I still help my uncle as a rod man when he needs an extra hand on a weekend here and there. So let’s get down to what brought me here. My uncles Recon is a little slow…

What is Land Surveying, a Land Survey, or a Surveyor? Part 2

The first part of this series we looked at what a Surveyor is, and does.  This article will look at what a Land Survey is, and will briefly look at the history what is called the Public Land Survey System or PLSS which is the basis of most non-colonial surveying.  This article will by no means be exhaustive--but will be longer than my normal posts.  The story you…
