Sample text

The third element, depth, in addition to surface rights, has been interpreted by the courts to include subsurface rights in minerals, waters, and passage, as well as aerial rights and the space above the land itself. English common law and the courts in the United States also recognize a fourth dimension: time. Time can describe or indicate the duration of the legal rights in real property that the vendor has to convey. Since ancient times, land has been considered as immovable or fixed in position.

The holder of the life estate is obligated to pay taxes, to make all necessary repairs, and in some instances to provide the necessary insurance to protect the property. A life tenant may convey any and all interests possessed but cannot encumber the property beyond the life conveyance terms. All conveyances purporting to convey any part of the remainder estate, without the prior approval of the remainderman, are void. A surveyor should never go beyond the words in the document. In Pennsylvania, some land was sold with quitrent; that is, the purchaser had to pay the seller a regular quitrent (a payment in money at specified intervals, theoretically, forever).

Whenever an estate is in question, the court attempts to convey a perfect estate or as large an estate as possible. Although the final decision is a legal one, it is important that surveyors or other people who research land records have knowledge of possible legal implications. In areas where surveyors commonly research legal records needed to conduct a survey, they should be able to recognize wording that could affect the interests of their client. If a researcher neglects to call attention to a possible problem and the client suffers damages, the researcher could be held liable and responsible.
