Sidwell’s popular Legal Descriptions Workshop is in Iowa again this year! This is a two day hands-on course for the beginner to the moderately experienced that covers many aspects of legal descriptions found on deeds and other recorded documents.
The class begins with a brief look at surveying methods, both past and present, followed by a look at the Public Land Survey System and how it benefits us when working with legal descriptions. From there it moves into how a section of land is divided and the different types of legal descriptions used in documents. The first day concludes with an in-depth look at the different types of angular measurements and the way they are constructed. The second day begins with curve terminology and construction. Then the class covers a variety of shorter sessions including a section on how water can affect property descriptions.
For those needing exam hours, there is an optional course review and DOR approved exam the second day. Anyone is welcome to take the exam, and results will be provided to those participating
