Aliquot Parts

Postby Tensforme » Friday April 1st, 2011 12:22 pm MDT

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) office in California told me that to issue a land patent they need from me the: Township, Range, Section and Aliquot Part. What is an "aliquot part"? Will the County Recorder's office know what this means; and is there a different name for it?

I believe, if I understand your question correctly, that this link will take you to where you can find out what an aliquot part is,
and how it relates to identifying parcels of land.
Perhaps “Team Law Admin” may have a more appropriate answer to the question that may be more to the point in how this applies to a land patent.
I hope at least this is a good place to start your education on the subject and answers you question.

The meaning of the term aliquot part as it is used in legal descriptions can easily be found by doing a quick internet search. It took me less than 2 minutes. Remember, Team Law does not do your work for you; rather, they help you learn how to learn the law efficiently and effectively so that you can properly apply it.

You may wish to try a search of: government land office, bureau of land managment. Informational, educational, and easy to use.

:h: Everyone:
We appreciate the responses our beneficiaries have made to this topical thread; however, we are a bit surprised that they did not focus the research through Team Law’s Online resources page where Team Law already addressed “aloquot parts”. From the http://teamlaw.net main menu, click on the link: Online resources. At the top of that page you will find the links to the BLM record system; the first of which is:
    U. S. Rectangular Survey System (RSS) Land in the United States of America is described in its “Aliquot Parts”. This BLM link defines the Section, Township and Range (STR) aliquot parts land description system used to define Land since shortly after the Constitutional Republic was formed.
However, following SimplyThinkDreams suggestion and searching Google for "Aliquot parts, BLM" provided a link regarding the use of the RSS in Oregon and Washington that describes that system quite well.

Thus, we appreciate SimplyThinkDreams suggestion and reminder of the importance for doing your own research firsthand and that from source material instead of third hand presentations. In other words, getting the information regarding the RSS from the BLM is getting it from the source. That is exactly why we provided a link to the BLM for getting the answers to the question at the center of this topical thread.

We hope this information is helpful to you.
