A Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) is uniquely qualified by education and experience. He or she has become registered by passing a series of Massachusetts Land Surveyors examinations. Only a Professional Land Surveyor duly registered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (see 250 CMR) is legally permitted to perform land surveys in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Be sure to look for a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) who is licensed in the state where your property is located.
While TECET and MALSCE cannot specifically recommend a firm to someone requesting a particular service, Proprietors Council membes are also members of the Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE), subscribe to the Code of Professional Conduct of MALSCE and have chosen to join the Proprietors' Council.
