    Statute of Frauds (and) Why People Ignore it. Attorneys and surveyors deal with many types of written documents in the course of their practice. Part One: Begins with an overview of the history, scope, and intent of the Statute of Frauds. Common law standards for legitimate conveyances, the rationale behind recording statutes, and court rules for the interpretation of documents will be discussed along with their significance to the attorney’s and the surveyor’s practice. Admissibility of parol evidence and other surrounding circumstances when interpreting deeds is considered. This program looks at unintended consequences that may arise due to the writings produced by the surveyor, including the recent rise in “slander of title” charges against Land Surveyors. The effect of tax maps on title and mechanisms that stretch the limits of the statute finish out the morning segment. Part Two: Looks at the many mechanisms that may operate outside of the statute of frauds, including the Common Scheme Doctrine, implied dedication and acceptance of easements and the Doctrine of the Presumed Grant. A discussion of parol agreement, part performance, acquiescence, estoppel, and adverse possession is included, along with the related issues of Color of title and of the legal significance of recorded and unrecorded surveys. The afternoon session finishes with the Doctrine of Merger and its effect on easements and on unwritten rights. (8 hours)
