Documents required to submit to BLM

Postby Mham50 » Wednesday May 27th, 2009 6:31 pm MDT

I am not sure if I need to submit a certifed copy of the plat map from the county records office along with the land description in the STR format to the BLM? Or is the STRF all that I need to submit to the BLM to secure the land patent.

Are you not able to confirm the documents required to secure the land patent for the BLM?

Thanks, Mark.

Since you appear to be in Texas, the BLM has no jurisdiction over land in Texas and does not have any Texas land records. [hr][/hr] :h: Inserted by Admin:
Accordingly, the U. S. Rectangular Survey System used in the Unites States of America to describe Land in its, “Aliquot Parts” [Section, Township and Range], which we abbreviate as “STRF”, is not used to define Land in Texas.
:t^: [hr][/hr]The Texas Land Office maintains all records of Texas lands. If the property in question is in a subdivision, you can identify the abstract number assigned to a Texas Land Grant on the subdivision plat map. Once you have the abstract number, you can look it up on the Texas Land Office website and then request a certified copy from them directly.

Thanks for the response; however, the property in question is located in Mississippi.

:h: Mark:
The nature of your original inquiry in this topical thread appeared to relate singularly to a private matter and accordingly, it should have been posted as a private message to Admin; however, even if it had been so submitted it would have been quite difficult for us to respond without knowing what you are intending with your questions.

Noticing that you are located in Texas, Citizensoldier responded to that inquiry by relating the fact that Land located in Texas is not found within the Corp. U.S.’ BLM records and we inserted the blurb regarding the “STRF” land description system; all of which gave your post some value to others on the forum and making it reasonable for us to leave the private matter inquiry on the Open Forum. Continuing in that vein, we now add the following response:

The first sentence of your inquiry indicated you are not sure what you need to submit to the BLM but did not disclose why you would “need” to submit anything. The second sentence indicated your intent is to get a copy of a land patent from them. If we are understanding your intent correctly—that being, you want to get a copy of the land patent for a particular parcel of land in Mississippi—then, we expect all you would need to do to answer that question is call the BLM on the phone and ask them what information they need to identify the land patent you are looking for and find out how much they will charge you for the copies you desire.

We also imagine that you can go to Team Law’s website to the Online resources page and follow the link at the top of the page to BLM Land Patent Records Search. There you can use their online system to find the land patent in question and print a copy of it directly from that site.

Beyond that we are not aware of what you mean by “confirm the documents required to secure the land patent for the BLM”. We are unaware of any documents required by BLM to get any records. The Land records they possess are public records and all you need to provide to get copies of those records is sufficient information to describe the land such that the specific records can be located and produced. You do have to pay for the copies if you have them get them or if you have them certify copies of such records; but, as noted you can simply print the documents directly from their website.

If you intend to use the land patent in its original nature, as Title to Land, then you will need to order certified copies of it if you do not already have the original. That can also be done either online at that website or over the phone with them and the precise STRF land description should be all they need to know to locate the proper land patent from their records.

We hope this information is helpful to you.
