[Solved] Excess measurement in old subdivision plat.
I hope someone can help. Michigan.Two year old plat of survey in an old platted subdivision, to find boundaries for a lot- was not completed,not certified,no drawing given- but rods with surveyors ID buttons were placed at corners. Is this a legal survey that can be used to Mark the boundary between the two lots without redoing the whole thing?
Good question. Hope some Michigan surveyors find this first thing Monday. The legality is a local issue.
No, I don't advise it.
No. Hire a surveyor.
The first question I would ask: Were any properties sold and reference made to that drawing?
I already paid for that incomplete survey two years ago. Neighbor refuses to survey his lot, probably because it'll show a 14' gap, pie shaped,between our properties. Instead,he got surveyor to come out and restake from 2017 measurements. Where's integrity. Not a surveyor, not an idiot.
What I am saying is your common corner with Lot 60 would be measured from the original SW corner of Lot 60, not the agreed corner which 60 had with 61 since the owner of your Lot was not a party to that.
Except to say it's usually not that simple...presumably you are somewhere in the middle of the block so a competent surveyor would measure the entire block, not just one Lot corner down the street.
Just glancing at the survey it appears Lot 61 erroneously used the corners across the street.
