Customer Question
In California, parcels created...

In California, parcels created by sectional breakdowns with no reference to assess/utility easements, rendering them landlocked. The jurisdiction has identified street names that connect to public roads but did not accept or require any deeded / dedications, so title insurance is being refused by the title company.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

In California.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No. Testimony from Public Works Department states there is no dedication of the corridor in which there are no written access/utility easements.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The County has signage that identifies the "Road", a dirt, traveled way, that encroaches at a State Highway and continues open and unrestricted across the un-dedicated portion of the traveled way to a "Subdivision" of homes served by the dedicated portion of the continuation of the road. So placement of the county sign, suggests a county road, even though unimproved.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
