A Land patent is an official document conveying land from the United States Government to private ownership and signed by the respective president of the
United States of America. These transferred title of public lands to the people or corporations named, and to their heirs and assigns, FOREVER.
Being both constitutional and biblical, once a Land Patent has been properly established, it will no longer be subject to any 3rd party challenge. These transfers were direct from the national government to the individual. There are some patents issued by States, also. Present-day parcels can be traced back to their original patents.
What is Allodial Title?
Allodial title originated from old English law when the King owned all the land. When the people put enough pressure on the King, the King conveyed the land to the people in what is known as Allodial title, or true ownership. American lands have been transferred to the United States through treaties, conquest, purchase, grants, and then to the people through Land Patents also known as Allodial title, or title in Allodium.
Public land versus Public Domain
Public land is land that has been appropriated or designated for a particular use. Public Domain means lands that have not been appropriated. Public land might be Monuments, National Forest, Parks, Wilderness and so on. The conveyance of land from public domain to private ownership was done through land patents.
Every piece of privately owned land has in it's origins, a land patent conveying full ownership to private individuals and to their heirs and assigns FOREVER signed by the President of the United States. This means that the ownership can never be diminished in it's authority and Jurisdiction.
Landmark case for land patents is Suma Corporation vs California which established that ownership can not be superseded by the State or anyone else.
When the original land was issued, it was Unencumbered, which means;
How does a land patent apply with water rights?
With few exceptions, any water that originates on the land, belongs to the owner. This would include, rain water, springs and wells, and thus the Government can not regulate or monitor the amount of water that an owner can use.
What if someone has obtained a Warranty Deed, is that property ownership?
No, the warranty deed only acts as color of title (imitation) originally issued by the State and does NOT convey true property ownership. Therefore, any property or land conveyed under a Warranty Deed will be subject to codes, regulations and taxation.
The Downside to a Land Patent
One of the few downsides to obtaining a land patent is that you may have difficulty in obtaining a loan or financing on your land (property / Real Estate). With the millions of people facing foreclosure and losing their homes, is that such a bad thing?
The other downside is, should you remove your land from the county tax rolls, emergency services will no longer have any obligation to respond to a 911 call or to provide any kind of emergency services. The remedy to this problem could be to create a private contract with each of the emergency services such as Police, Fire, Ambulance and the Shreriff's Office.
