Mark and Brenda Voss of Missouri built a home in Florida. It's likely their house will end up in court. Two surveyors made a mistake, and the house was built on a lot that doesn't belong to them.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Mark and Brenda Voss are living the dream. The Missouri couple had a home built in Florida - five bedrooms, theater, game room, pool, ocean views. Trouble is the builder put the house on the wrong lot, which the Vosses do not own. Two surveyors made a mistake. The Flagler County property assessor says the case may end up in court, but he's not stunned by this error, saying, quote, "it happens from time to time."

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Excuse me, Steve, that's my chair.

INSKEEP: Oh, sorry. It's MORNING EDITION.
