I wait until I get the preceding deed or the deed to the next party.
Sometimes, it is corrected. Most often the mistake is followed to the next
deed. If I'm real lucky, the deed may indicate the patent, so I order that.
Sometimes the mistake is in the patent as well. Sometimes not. Or, if
you're mapping a neighborhood, the neighboring tract likely will show where
the mistake is. Sometimes substituting coordinates helps. Try different
things. You may just have to keep tracing the deed closer to the present to
see what you find in each deed.
I have checked and double checked the coordinates and directions and the
plat does not close properly. I am assuming it was just recorded wrong.
How do other's handle these kinds of deed plats?
