Deeds Conveynaces and Boundaries

Deeds, Conveyances and Boundaries – Half Day or Full Day (Nominally 4.0 or 8.0 Contact Hours)
The resolution of any property boundary issue is a two-part question. The legal question is: “What is the property?” This is the title question, generally answered by the title documents, namely the deed. The separate but equally important factual question is: “Where is the property located?” The location question is not a legal question, it is fact-based and involves the gathering and evaluation of collateral and extrinsic evidence. The first question involves the role of the title examiner, the second involves the role of the boundary surveyor. This program examines the law as it applies to deeds and legal descriptions, and the role they play in the conveyance of real property title. In addition to the conveyance of real property title, this program will also focus on the factual question as to the location of the property that was conveyed. Fundamental title and location doctrines will be discussed along with case examples. This program will be accompanied by a Power Point presentation.
OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
