So we have a very good construction client with whom we have
done A TON of work for over the years. They are now working on a project where
another surveyor did the base mapping (a very good and well respected
surveyor). We were given a CAD file of the plans for layout purposes which also
shows the property lines. We are being asked to stake one of the property lines
with a couple of rebar, lath and paint so they know where their limits are. We
are already tied into the project through state plane and checked with building
corners for the construction layout.
Is it legal or ethical to stake this
line based on that CAD file if we specifically state that we are staking the
line based on that map in the contract?
To be honest this is the first
time we have been asked to do this...
