LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Survey problems
If you have trouble with a surveyor you can file a complaint with the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying in Austin, Texas. The mailing address is:

Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying
Building A, Suite 156
12100 Park 35 Circle
Austin, Texas 78753

The phone number is (512) 239-5263.

This could be very important to the citizens living to the east of Victoria Ave. because you could be confronted with this in the event you sell, buy, or have your place financed, because your chances of a survey with the 10 ft. error is very likely to fall on your house or other buildings like it did on Block 48, 49, 75, 79, 90, 93, and 95 when the surveyors use their famous 10 foot error on all the first lots facing the east side of Victoria Ave. It was laid out being 50 feet but the surveyors say oops I found a written number error and it is now 40 feet.

Remember I am not a licensed surveyor, but sometimes the person that surveys in Iowa Park for Biggs and Mathews in not a licensed state surveyor either, he only works for Biggs and Mathews.

Me being a non-surveyor I wonder where this 10 foot error ends. If it ends at the west side of Bell Road there is quite a few houses that will be affected. The city and state surveyors need to get this straightened out which way this 10 foot error is because what is funny, but not funny, is it affects someone’s property when they use the 10 foot error and it falls on a building or structure they get more money to move it back 10 foot so it does not hit a building or structure.
