Every professional surveyor across the Unites States knows the  phrase "Follow in the Footsteps" as it relates to conducting a boundary  retracement survey. But what does it really mean and what is the basis  for following the footsteps? And exactly whose footsteps are we talking  about? Surveyors also know the effect of the statute of frauds is that  what is written in the conveyancing document is considered by the courts  to be the highest and best expression of the parties' intentions. But  what happens when the evidence of the footsteps on the ground conflicts  with the written title? What if there are seemingly no footsteps to  follow? What then? In this program we will explore the concept of  retracement, how it relates to and is dependent on the document of  conveyance, and what controls when conflicts are inevitably encountered.  When armed with a full understanding of the concept of retracement,  surveyors will be much better equipped to help steer their clients (and  their affected neighbors) away from the pain and cost of litigation, and  towards an amicable solution based on well-placed confidence and  understanding of their respective roles and responsibilities.
