Actions against a surveyor

The Senate Civil Law Committee heard HB 1050, sponsored by Sen. Glick, on actions against a surveyor. This bill provides that an action to recover damages for a deficiency in a land survey must be brought against the surveyor not later than 10 years after the date of the survey. The bill also sets forth requirements for a notice of survey letter to an adjoining landowner. It also provides that an action for damages for a survey completed before July 1, 2015, may not be brought against a surveyor unless the action is commenced within 15 years after the date of the survey. The statute of limitations was amended for all claims to 10 years after the date of the survey. The amended bill passed 8-0.
