New Land Court Manual of Instructions

The Land Court has issued a new edition of Manual of Instructions for the Survey of Lands and Preparation of Plans, which will be effective January 2, 2006. “This manual is issued for the information and guidance of land surveyors preparing surveys and plans to be filed in the Land Court. It is intended as a guide to the minimum requirements for what is commonly referred to in this commonwealth as a “Land Court Survey”. Compliance with these instructions is mandatory, and no survey or plan will be accepted for filing unless these requirements have been fulfilled to the satisfaction of the Land Court’s Survey Division.” The Manual is linked from Law About Real Estate and also under Land Court Rules.
