Hello — I’m going to answer my own question here, but just in case…
The legal description on the vesting deed of a property I’m about to purchase with an in-house closing does not include the township/range/section. It only lists the lot #, subdivision name, filing #, followed by the phrase “according to the recorded plat thereof”. However, county records (and ParcelFact) include the township/range/section as part of the legal description for this parcel.
Because Land Academy has done an excellent job of drilling it into our heads that you must copy the legal description exactly as it appears on the vesting deed, I plan on doing that. But is there anything I’m overlooking? Are there counties that now insist on adding this information to the deed, even if it didn’t appear previously? This is for Park County, Colorado.
