Subject: Homestead v Residence
Date: Sun, 24 Jun 2001 14:07:14 -0700
Just for clarification sakes. Many folks equate a homestead to that of a land patent. People today still file for a homestead for their actual home. It is a device to protect your home from litigation etc and the actual process is a homestead. Whereas with a land patent, people filed on the land to prove title from the government, yet those folks were actually referred to as "homesteaders"
