Ownership of land ownership rights, otherwise known as land title, is often disputed due mistakes in a property’s chain-of-title, poorly written conveyances, or the grantor deeding more than they actually owned. Dr. Nettleman has extensive experience in researching title records in county, state and federal
clearinghouses for over a decade. Contact Dr. Nettleman below to learn about how he can help you resolve your title issues.
Riparian Ownership and Use
Locating the waterfront ownership or properties is difficult! These waterfront lines are constantly moving and shifting. Did your property experience a build-up of sediment or a major allusive event? Even more evidence is required before finding the boundary. These subjects can be some of the most frustrating and time-consuming land disputes. Even more important than riparian ownership, is the allocation of docking rights. There are many methods to allocate riparian use between neighbors, and choosing the correct method is critical to properly locating lines of use. Contact Dr. Nettleman today to discuss all the riparian allocation methods available to you.
Standards of Practice
Everything a land surveyor is required to do is dictated by survey textbooks, state case law, and statute. The majority of surveyors practice within these rules and do a great job. But some surveyors injure their clients by failing to meet minimum standards. Determining if the surveyor met their professional duty can often be difficult and confusing. Dr. Nettleman has testified for both plaintiffs and defendants concerning land survey negligence and professional responsibility issues many times, contact him today to learn more about what land surveyors are required to do.
Post-trial relief for expert witness fees can require as much time and effort as the trial itself. Dr. Nettleman has produced written reports and given testimony concerning the reasonableness of expert fees in engineering, surveying and other professional-expert cases.
