Vacated Alleys Presume Included In All Deeds

Concerning the presumption that a conveyance of an interest in land also conveys an interest in adjoining property consisting of a vacated right-of-way.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:

Under current law, a conveyance by warranty deed carries the presumption that the grantor's interest in an adjoining vacated street, alley, or other right-of-way is included with the property whose legal description is contained in the deed. However, this presumption does not apply to other types of deeds or to a lease, mortgage, or other conveyance or encumbrance.

The bill removes the language containing the presumption from the warranty deed statute and relocates it, with amendments, so as to broaden the application of the presumption of conveyance of an adjoining vacated right-of-way to include not only warranty deeds but also all forms of deeds, leases, and mortgages and other liens.


(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
