Can someone please help me?
I currently have a powerline tower on my land, and am wanting to build, but unsure where it is from the reading. this is what it says
Beginning at iron pin in the line of the lands of XXX and person2 property: the line south 64 degrees 21 minutes 46 seconds east 630.09 feet to pipe in the centerline of ditch, thence with centerline of said ditch as follows:
south 22 degrees 32 minutes 51 seconds
west 126.20 feet
south 70 degrees 07 minutes 27 seconds
west 26.05 feet
south 9 degrees 29 minutes 54 seconds
west 64.87 feet to the edge of the KU compan easement strip: thence with the edge of the KU company easement strip Nort 65 Degrees 09 Minutes 30 seconds west 633.39 feet to an iron pin in the line of the PERSON2 property; thence with the line of PERSON2 property North 24 degrees 45 minutes 00 seconds east 215.70 feet to the point of beginning and containing 3.05 acres. More or less
Is this enough information for you all?
Contact the Land Surveyor that prepared the survey that the deed description is based on.
It was done in 1972. The guy that did it no longer works there. I contacted KU, and they sent over the paper that you see above.
Doe the co-ordinates mean anything to anyone?
Those are not GPS numbers-- they are compass headings degrees are 0-360 -- the minutes-- 60 minutes to a degree-- and seconds-- 60 seconds to a minute. So you start from the iron stake and read from there. There is probably stakes or pipes at he corners. Hard to find without the proper equipment. It might be corrected for true north also.
This is what I understand.
I think you're totally right. And for the Original Poster planning to put up a building, if you can't find anyone to help you with this old survey, it may well be time to hire a surveyor yourself to confirm everything and to stake the various lines and areas. Next step may be to contact your local zoning folks and see where they say you can build and possibly where you can't. You surely don't want to build where the zoning folks won't approve it--or worse, to fully build and then have an outside party sue for having a building encroaching where it should not be.
I agree with jwc3006 and CraigW. It's probably time for a resurvey. 35 years is a long time and sites change.
Since this was prepared in 1972, it is unlikely that the bearings are based on true north. It might be based on magnetic north, but more likely based on a locally assumed north or State Plane Grid north. Even today, surveys are rarely based on true north.
It sounds like you're trying to save a few dollars and use your Nuvi to do survey layout. DON'T. It's nowhere near accurate enough for survey work. Leave it to the professionals.
This is a metes and bounds description of an easement, and I believe that the version shown here is incomplete. You would need a surveyor to retrace it properly, or at least plot it on a map to see if it is anywhere near your building site. The calls in the description to iron pins, ditches, and other parcels rule over the bearings and distances shown.
