Hello, I'm looking for some help/guidance on the below situation. I don't know anything about surveying, so please be gently with your responses if I've completely missed the mark. Any help is appreciated. If there are any other details I can provide, let me know.
I own the 10 acre parcel shown as PID: R01.033.0750 on the attached. Here's the legal description:
Sect-33 Twp-117 Range-030
E 330' of S 1/2 SW 1/4
A majority of this property is currently in agricultural production and it was previously designated as Agricultural Homestead. Since building a home on the parcel, the designation was changed to Residential Homestead. My county (McLeod County, MN) requires a full 10 acres in agricultural production to qualify for an Agricultural Homestead designation.
My goal is to get the land designation switched back to Agricultural Homestead. To do so, my brother will be quitclaim deeding me 5 acres of adjacent agricultural land - PID R01.033.0700. Here's what the new 15 acre parcel will look like.
I could use help writing the legal description of the land to be acquired.
My best guesses are: W 1/2 of NE 1/4 of SE 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Sect-33 Twp 117 Range 030 5.00 AC or E 165' of W 3/4 of SE 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Sect-33 Twp-117 Range-030 5.00 AC
Here's a wide view of the entire section, with the current 10 acre parcel highlighted in red.
