Subject: [DMU] What is an "open line"
Date: Fri, 10 Apr 2009 22:22:19 -0700
I have a deed which has the following wording:
Beginning at a black Oak and two post Oaks in a conditional line
between John Murphy and said Butler thence
South 160 poles
to three black Oaks in John Birds open line thence
East six poles
to his corner thence
with sd Birds line
South 19 poles
to a black Oak post Oak & hickory thence
What is this so-called "open line"? I've looked in various on-line refs,
google, yahoo, etc. I can find the term used in surveys but not
explained. The usage is similar to the above.
In one place it refers simply to a deed survey that does not close
exactly, but this does not seem to apply here.
