Contract Contingencies
I would say that most people who have gone through the real estate purchasing process are familiar with purchasing contingencies.  They find their “dream property” and make an offer to purchase.  If they are replacing their existing home they will typically want to make the purchase IF their current house sells.  So they put a contingency into the contract that allows them to back out of the contract if their house does not sell.  Sometimes there is a contingency for finan

Every so often we will find a property corner that is monumented multiple times.  This is often referred to as a “pincushion” corner.  Property law and the law of boundaries demand that an existing monument that was originally set in order to represent a property corner be honored by all following land surveyors. By this definition, a land surveyor is either an original surveyor who is establishing new boundary lines and setting corners for the very first time, or the land surveyor is doing a re
