I have a client who "just wanted one line staked". The parcel is in a Large Lot Subdivision, done in 1995. It seems his neighbor is mowing what he thinks is his property and they just want to know for sure. ... It's not how do I find this line. I've been surveying for over 35 years; I know when I'm making mistakes, I know how to use found evidence to resolve my clients boundary, I know how to stake this line so that any other surveyor could retrace what I've done and come to the same conclusions I have. I do not keep track of hours, I tell the client how much it's going to cost and that is what I bill him. The problem I have is, who do I send the bill for the extra time to?
