For years there has been a degree of uncertainty as to exactly what a Plat Dedication means. Does this convey an interest in the fee simple interest under the road, an easement, or some other interest. As foreclosures of failed subdivisions have increased, this issue has taken on greater significance, and our friends at the RPPTL Problem Studies Committee are looking at whether Florida Statutes need to be amended to clarify exactly what a plat dedication means. If you have specific examples of problems arising from ambiguous plat dedications, please add those details (including recording information) as a comment to this Blog entry. We will make certain that your examples are considered by the appropriate people.
