We are pleased to share a new resource with our supporters. There is a new page on our web site dedicated to the preparation and filing of record-of-survey maps in California. At this time the web page has links to attorney general opinions and letters from the licensing board that are related to record-of-survey maps. We also have included copies of the past land surveyor acts in California. These legislative acts layout the requirement for the filing of record-of-survey maps.
We hope to add more resources related to record-of-survey maps to this page in the future. If you have resources we can share or link to on this page, please contact us.
