Established in 2000, 2Point, Incorporated has achieved recognition and respect within the surveying and legal communities specializing in difficult retracements and boundary problems—often involving issues many firms tend to avoid.
The company primarily engages in complex boundary disputes, access issues and consultation for attorneys who require an expert surveyor with specialized knowledge of unusual or obscure aspects of real estate law.
2Point is a closely held company. Kristopher and Robyn Kline are the only officers; our surveys and other projects are not “farmed out” to employees. You can rest assured that work elements for your project will not be delegated to inexperienced personnel. Kris is a licensed professional surveyor, author, and consultant. As office manager, Robyn has long experience in quality control and routinely reviews our maps and other documents before their release.
Kristopher M. Kline
Professional Land Surveyor
Kristopher M. Kline, president of 2Point, Inc., has a Bachelor of Science degree (class of '84) in general science from Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Va. He has been involved in the surveying profession since graduation.
Licensed in North Carolina in 1991 (P.L.S. L - 3374), Kris is a 1999 graduate of the North Carolina Society of Surveyors (N.C.S.S.) Institute, a three-year continuing education program that for many years drew national attention for the quality of its curriculum and instructors. Kris chaired the N.C.S.S. Education Committee for three years.
In 2001, Kris began offering continuing education courses in North Carolina on legal aspects of retracement. More recently, his teaching career has expanded to include conferences and seminars nationwide. Course offerings now include a broad range of topics, including adverse possession and other unwritten rights, riparian law, mineral rights, and courtroom preparation. Customized courses tailored to the jurisdiction in which they are presented enhance their value to the professional. Kris has presented several keynote addresses for state conventions.
In 2011, he began publishing the column “Unmistakable Marks” in Point of Beginning magazine, a national trade journal for surveying professionals. Kris presently submits bi-monthly articles for the magazine, and he has published more than 50 articles to date. These write-ups are intended for a national audience and generally focus on various legal aspects of boundary retracement.
In August 2013, Kris published his first book, “Rooted in Stone: the Development of Adverse Possession in 20 Eastern States and the District of Columbia.” This text considers adverse possession and prescriptive easements from their early origins to the present day. Separate chapters are dedicated to variations between jurisdictions in the eastern United States.
His second book, “Riparian Boundaries and Rights of Navigation,” includes extensive discussion of the many definitions of the term “navigable.” This short volume was completed in 2015 and focuses on property rights along smaller rivers, streams, lakes and estuaries. It considers the inevitable confusion that results when modern definitions are applied to early grants and the effects of subsequent legislation on riparian rights.
Kris’ third (and latest) book was released in December 2016. “How to Fix a Boundary Line” chronicles variations in the legal mechanisms related to unwritten property rights across the United States. Topics include acquiescence, part performance of oral contracts, adverse possession, estoppel and the doctrine of merger.
