Course Summary:
This presentation describes deeds and their various issues in land surveying profession. Deed is an
instrument in writing which, when executed and delivered, conveys and estate in real property or
interest therein. The various types of deeds are corporate deed, general warranty deed, grant deed,
mortgage deed, quitclaim deed, special warranty deed, trust deed, unrecorded deed, void deed and
warranty deed. This presentation emphasizes on how to write effective deed description, pitfalls
in writing deed descriptions. The term “legal description” refers to the written description of
property and certain other data that identifies the subject piece of property. The established rules
of construction are used only when the instrument is not clear, is ambiguous, or is uncertain. Rules
of construction always look to “the intention of the parties” and particularly to the intention of the
grantor or assignor where that can be determined. The court will usually begin to determine the
intention of the parties by the terms used in the instrument. If the intention is still doubtful, the
court will then likely use construction aids, or rules of construction, to ascertain the parties’
objective intent. If the instrument is ambiguous, the court may allow parole or other extrinsic
evidence to be considered, such as the circumstances leading to execution of the instrument, the
situation of the parties, and the subject matter. The language of an instrument will be the controlling
factor in its interpretation. Courts are generally not concerned with what the parties meant to say
but with what they did say ¬the language of the instrument. Emphasis is given on how ambiguous
deed descriptions can create problems and how to deal with these situations with real life examples
in this presentation.
