Legal Descriptions & Title Insurance From State to State

calender icon 5/31/2022    poster icon  Mark Goodman

In the title insurance world, we occasionally work with professionals such as lenders and attorneys from other states who wish to apply their state rules to land in Minnesota. An example of this would be attempting to use a metes and bounds legal description for a property that is platted. Not only is the reversion to an underlying metes and bounds description considered invalid in Minnesota, but it could create a lot of confusion with the neighboring owners. This is not to mention that the purpose of recording a plat is to simplify the legal description, establish boundaries with the neighbors and avoid exactly the type of confusion that reverting to the underlying metes and bounds legal description would create.
