Alignment of Title Reports - Legal Descriptions


To satisfy the Statute of Frauds, not just any description will do.

Surveys and title reports reveal critical information about real estate legal descriptions that only the professional provider can deliver after an investigation and analysis of the public land title records and the site when transferring real property.  Historically, transfers of real property are subject to the Statute of Frauds, which provides that no action shall be brought upon real estate contracts unless the agreement or some memorandum thereof shall be in writing and signed by the person sought to be charged or by his authorized agent.  Though the statutes vary considerably, all but two states have codified one or more versions of the Statute of Frauds. This white paper reviews the Statute of Frauds; and provides descriptions of metes and bounds, surface area, and Riparian descriptions.
