“Locating property lines without the assistance of a Surveyor” is a Bad Idea

I spend a significant portion of my energies warning people about this. It’s all I can do.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that the City of Oak Ridge is suing two men for $50,000 in damages for cutting trees that did not belong to them after they “located the property lines without the assistance of a surveyor.” That has got to be sobering. If they choose to contest, the trial costs alone will probably run $10,000 or more. Moreover, the law on this issue is very clear. The men have no legitimate defense.  They sure saved a lot of money by not hiring a surveyor.
