I've done a few miles of right-of-way in Oklahoma this year and a few plats for terminals. Sent in my CCRs, getting comfortable with the work. Today the title company bounced my metes and bounds description for one of the terminals and sent me an example with a request to rewrite. As we have discussed, Texas metes and bounds can tend to be verbose since we are not a recording state and the goal is to get as much information into the recorded deed. I am the original surveyor for this tract that we are cutting out. It seems downright irresponsible to me not to put in the description of the monuments set. The barebones title company description seems lacking to me. Opinions welcome.
Also, apparently another entity that still relies on the facsimile machine. I wonder if it has been upgraded from steam powered?
I've finally capitulated around here. Not barebones, but kinda streamlined.
Don't slow down anything. "Time is money, and money is what we are here for". Seems to guide...
Who has the professional license to judge what is sufficient?
Welcome to Oklahoma.
When it comes to title companies around here I've noticed the lower the intelligence of the employee, the higher up they are in their internal food chain.
I see plenty of descriptions written by Okie surveyors with calls to monuments and reserve the right to same in a lot of instances. And I see more and more of them as time goes by. I think it's a good thing. I would probably tell the title company they're free to hack it up (like they always do) any way they see fit...just make sure they leave off your name from their quicky-edit.
But I am top of my 'food chain' around here and can be a butt anytime I feel like it. I couldn't do that when I was punchin' a clock for someone else.
I'd probably check with the guy that writes the checks and see if you can afford to stand by your professional work...
