Forensic & Historical
A forensic survey generally differs from a boundary survey, in that no opinions regarding the placement of property lines or property corners are provided in a forensic survey. A forensic survey may include boundary information as incidental to the focus of the survey, however, no opinions regarding boundaries are provided, as a general rule. Should ownership of a particular object, like a fallen tree, then placement of property lines and property corners will come have to be determined. A forensic survey is scientific in its methodology. The final product of the forensic survey is a document that illustrates the evidence discovered during the survey to support and advance a scientific, engineering, and/or legal theory.
