This is typical around here
Like I said in the other thread--- record not found, boundary by agreement, done!
There are surveyors that make reference to unrecorded files in their own office.
They also do not share their files and often use the reference as the basis of their bearings and beginning point tie.
I have argued to no end that by doing so and as their property descriptions are included in a recorded deed that they have declared their office records to be public records and can not refuse that to anyone.
