470. The land surveyor chosen by the owners or designated by the court draws up a boundary determination report under the surveyor’s professional oath and in the surveyor’s capacity as an expert. The report must give an account of all the operations necessary to determine the boundaries of the immovables concerned. It must include a plan of the premises, state the respective contentions of the owners concerned and establish the boundaries between the immovables that appear to the surveyor to be the most accurate. The land surveyor, after filing the report with the court office if the land surveyor was designated by the court, notifies a copy of it to the owners and informs them of the consequences of their accepting, not accepting or contesting the report.
The expert fees are apportioned equally among the owners.
