A Dirt Lawyer’s Guide to Surveys and Deeds
 
Co-sponsored by BOOKS IN ACTION
 
Topics to be Discussed:  
 
SURVEYS, BOUNDARIES and DESCRIPTIONS
Before real property can be conveyed, its boundaries need to be properly defined through surveys and legal descriptions. Learn what to do and what NOT to do in this segment, including discussions of:
- Types of Surveys
- Review of Surveys
- Survey Issues
- Survey Issues and Title Insurance
Questions are encouraged – bring your questions and your questionable surveys to this class.
 
DEEDS and CONVEYANCING
Deeds can be entertaining. This segment will offer some interesting examples of actual deeds while discussing the finer points of deeds and conveyancing. Topics include:
- Types of Deeds
- Elements of the Conveyance
- Ownership Discrepancies and Document Defects
- Curative Instruments
Bring your questionable deeds, and bring your questions, too.
 
Program Description:
 
In early times, property was transferred by way of a ceremony, usually on the ground in question, in which the owner, in the presence of witnesses, would hand a clump of dirt from the ground to the grantee. The procedure is more refined now, but the basics of “dirt law” remain the same.
 
In this half-day seminar, we will enter the world of Colorado real property law by discussing two fundamental components of real property. Attendees will gain practical experience through an interactive, question-and-answer format program discussing the dos and don’ts of surveys and deeds. See how these two components are discussed in almost every chapter in the book, and how the book may be used to identify issues that may be relevant but not immediately apparent to the practitioner. Bring your questionable deeds and legal descriptions, and learn the intricacies of dirt law in Colorado.
 
Each attendee receives a copy of Colorado Real Property Law, Third Edition, originally written by George E. Reeves and updated for the Third Edition by Gregory J. Notarianni. Colorado Real Property Law is a must-have compendium of case law and statutes dealing with real property law in Colorado. Mr. Reeves has thoroughly compiled every significant statement of law regarding Colorado real property ever made by any court, legislative body, or other governmental entity, and Mr. Notarianni has continued the tradition with updates for the Third Edition. The book consists of two volumes: Volume 1 defines real property, and Volume 2 provides a closer look at real property in action.
