Real Estate Tips

Once I know the property’s legal description how do I find the property?

Once I know the property’s legal description how do I find the property?

A. There are many ways to find your information through public channels. Some of the helpful public ways for researching and successfully locating your property are as follows:

I. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM is an agency within the United States Department of the Interior that administrates over approximately 262 million acres of American public lands, located primarily in twelve Western States. If your land is located within those 12 Western States, we would suggest that you contact a field office where the property is located and ask them any questions you may have about the property prior to attempting to locate your parcel of land. A list of those field offices may be found at http://www.blm.gov.

II. BLM Regional Map. The BLM Map is really something you should review prior to planning any site visit of your property. This Map shows the Range, Township and Section, as well as the primary and secondary roads and trails leading to the property. This Map should be used in conjunction with any typical road atlas.

It should be noted that while we attempt to give driving directions in many of our auctions, they are given as a courtesy to our buyers and may contain errors or omissions and therefore should not be relied upon. You should look at: (1) Plat Maps, which is a map used to indicate the location of boundaries of individual properties such as lots and blocks; (2) The Legal Description, which is the description of the property used to identify the real estate and is located in each of our auctions or on the Deed. Further you should consider using the (3) Road Atlas & Gazzetter which is a guide showing detailed topographical maps, back roads and G.P.S. grids. At times we will also give you (4) GPS (Global Positioning System) reference points to calculate positions accurate to within meters of the property. This system is very helpful but not always necessary. Most of the above maps do explain how to read the Townships and Ranges shown in each. You should be acquainted with each of these methods for reading the BLM Maps as they may be very useful to you. Please remember as stated in our Units of Measure that one Section of land contains one square mile, and one Township contains 36 Sections.
