We get a request for an ALTA survey on a parcel that we have updated since the late 90’s.
Our proposal is accepted but in the meantime, the buyer is shopping. The buyer finds a lower bid and decides to contract with that surveyor.
That surveyor literally had the nerve...while apologizing...to ask for a CAD file....🤣
Not a @#$%%## chance.
I would not hesitate to sell the CAD data for 4-5 times my fee to gather and compile it...
I once had another surveyor copy my survey, and replace the title block, with his own.
He is no longer licensed.
That would have been one of the very few times in my life where I was at a loss for words.
I can't think of a professional way to tell someone to "sh*t and waller around in it".
