: In the state of Washington.
: Property transfers ("constitutional") appear to be covered under
: RCW Title 64. There are even templates for the proper form of a
: deed. It's a relatively short title.
: "Normal", conventional, title insured transfers appear to be covered
: by the Torrence Act, which can be found in RCW Title 65, and is a thick
: document. Partaking in the provisions of the Torrence Act is voluntary,
: as it says in one of the first few paragraphs.
: The Torrence Act will register the land, create a Certificate of Title.
: This may divest the owner of possesion.
RCW 65.12.225 authorizes the withdrawal from the land registration program.
The procedure is spelled out further in 65.12.225 and 65.12.235. Does anyone
have further information regarding this process? It appears that after a
Certificate of withdrawal has been recorded, the owners will be allowed to contract
and convey, and DOE, JOHN, can perhaps then convey the interest to John Doe in
fee simple, an indefeasable seizin and possesory right. Any comments appreciated.
