6 Background Information Oldest Civilizations Surveyed Land “ CURSED BE HE THAT REMOVETH HIS NEIGHBORS LANDMARK” (Deuteronomy 27:17) C902.R PPT-6

7 Monuments  Natural - Created by Nature  Artificial – Human made Problem - Lack of Permanency Boundary Marker C902.R PPT-7

8 Boundary Records Deeds, Maps, Plats, Etc. In Registry of Deed Office Deeds Indexed Alphabetically, by Years, and by:  Grantee - Purchaser  Grantor - Seller C902.R PPT-8

9 Property Description Format Caption/Preamble  Identifies Local Area Body  Describes Specific Tract Reservations  List Rights Reserved by Grantor Exceptions  Rights Previously Conveyed C902.R PPT-9

10 Background Information Land is Commodity  Unit is “Parcel” or “Tract”  Precisely Describe Land  Enable Location of Property Boundaries in Future  Transfer Title Purpose & Use of Property Descriptions C902.R PPT-10

11 M etes & Bounds Measurement & Descriptions of Boundaries Metes – Direction and Distance Course/Call - Bearing and Distance to Monument or Adjoiner Bounds – Call to Adjoining Owners Uses Narration C902.R PPT-11

12 Metes & Bounds Old Deeds - Usually Followed Stream or Ridge Example: “Bounded on the North by Big Creek, on the northeast by Cedar Swamp, on the East by a stone wall along lands of Ezra Stone, and on the South and West by the Turnpike Road.” C902.R PPT-12

13 Metes & Bounds Lengths and Bearings Given - Corners Marked and Described Point of Beginning - Must Begin at Known Point May Need to Start at Point of Commencement Must Close: Error of Closure – “e” Completely Encircle Property, Usually Clockwise C902.R PPT-13
