Abstract: If $ R \subset S$ are Riemann surfaces, we will say that $ {z_0} \in S - R$ is an isolated point boundary component of $ R$ if there exists a neighborhood $ U$ of $ {z_0}$ in $ S$ such that $ U - \{ {z_0}\} \subset R$. We prove that the quadratic differential $ Q\left( z \right)d{z^2}$ obtained by solving the module problem $ P({a_1}, \ldots ,{a_k})$ applied to a free family of homotopy classes on $ R$ can be extended to $ {z_0} \in S$ so that either $ Q\left( z \right)$ is regular at $ {z_0}$ or $ Q(z)$ has a simple pole at $ {z_0}$.
