Perils Confronting Investors That Lay Beyond the Reach of Land Records


If you rely on land records you must know the limitations of the records.

Not all rights and interests in, and encumbrances against, real property are ascertainable from an exhaustive search and examination of the public land records.  It is entirely possible that the ownership of real estate is in a party whose name is not apparent from the public land records, and one who was not the grantee in a deed or conveyance.  Those who rely upon public land records must know the limitations of records, and the scope of information they contain concerning defects, liens and encumbrances against the title, so that they do not place undue reliance upon such records before taking action to purchase and develop land without first resolving potentially conflicting rights. This white paper discusses titles by adverse possession, prescriptive easements, and mechanics' liens.
