“The actions of a subsequent surveyor may change your boundary. For instance, if your neighbor hires a surveyor to establish the common boundary between the two of you, and that surveyor is in error, his erroneous line probably well become the boundary unless you take appropriate action. You should never acquiesce in a boundary determination unless it is the best possible location of the true title boundary. If you discover that your boundary does not agree with your long-continued occupation lines, take some action with your neighbor. Neither one of you has good title to the overlap – in most states – and in effect, the land isn’t completely useable by either of you. Investigate the situation jointly with him, and hire a surveyor together, Take his results to a lawyer and have him formalize and record a title change or boundary agreement, and get copies into both abstracts. Remember, you will both lose if a court must resolve your disagreement."
