Dear Bob:

Generally speaking, on all lands on which we have an easement,
the uderlying title is owned by individuals or corporations.
Due to the fact that the ownership is in individuals or corp-
orations, under the ad valorem taxing law, a tax is assessed
against this .and.

It would seem that from year to year it will be necessary to
F check with the Tax Collectors of the individual counties as
to whether the ad valorem tax has been paid on a particular
parcel. If, for any reason, the taxes were not paid and the
property was put for sale for taxes, the parties may claim
that such purchase of property'for taxes may wipe out our ease-

Therefore, I think it is important thattthe Land Department check
all these matters each year to be sure that we do not lose any
easements because of non-payment of taxes.
