Re: [tips_and_tricks] Land Patents
- What I've learned from the BLM here on the West coast is that the original land patentee's name can not be changed, but you may file your name as the present Assign with your county recorder under their misc. file. This creates a legal document that you are now the present patent holder. Once that is recorded, have several certified copies made for your records and future legal use.You may even wish to use a local escrow company and pay them to furnish an Abstract of Title showing the status of your land and who presently owns it.Bill

Date: Friday, December 23, 2011, 11:41 AMHi Danny: Obtaining a certified copy of a land patent for one's property is easy to do. Submit to the Bureau of Land Management in Alexandria, VA a description of the property which you have title to along with the needed fee. You will eventually receive a copy.Once you have received your copy, you will have to find an attorney (hopefully in your geographical area) who is knowledgeable about land patents. This will take some, possibly a lot of, work. Competent legal counsel is needed. You may have to search the web for such attorneys. Keep at it. (Danny, start your search for such attorney(s) today.)DaveFrom: danny wayne <bootstrap55@...>

Anybody know of anyone who has successfully received a land patent?
- Please understand that a land patent is only a Quit Claim Deed actually. The government quit all of its interest in the public land by their sale of such land. By that sale the tract became private land.
