The New Hampshire Land Surveyors’ Association celebrated their 50th anniversary with a packed annual meeting held in Concord earlier this month. Paul Alfano gave a presentation showing land surveyors how they can determine who owns the fee “underneath” a road.
Road ownership often is irrelevant until a road is discontinued, or if it never is opened, built, or used for public travel within certain, statutory time limits. Once one of those events occurs, land once encumbered by a road can be quite valuable.
For more information on public and private roads, please see our free road law guide. The guide is available online, or can be downloaded.
