March 1, 2016: Title Evidence for Trust Acquisition

Comment period is open until March 31st. 2016. Final Rule to take effect April 15th, 2016. “The current rule provides that, once the Secretary determines that he or she will approve a request to take land into trust, he or she must acquire, or require the applicant to furnish, title evidence meeting the Standards for the Preparation of Title Evidence in Land Acquisitions by the United States. Those standards have since been re-issued as the Department of Justice Title Standards 2001: A guide for the preparation of title evidence in land acquisition by the United States of America. This interim final rule deletes the requirement for the applicant to furnish title evidence meeting the DOJ standards because those standards are not required for acquisitions of land in trust for individual Indians or Indian tribes.”
