Prev Article 20. - LAND SURVEYSNext


58-2005. Review of survey plats; requirements; procedure; costs; recording of plat, when; waiver. (a) Before a subdivision plat, or survey plat required to be recorded pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 19-1434, and amendments thereto, can be recorded, it shall be reviewed by the county surveyor or a land surveyor designated by the county. The county shall be responsible for the enforcement of this act. The county surveyor or other land surveyor designated by the county shall certify that such plat meets all the requirements of this act.

(b) (1) The survey plat shall be reviewed for: (A) Closure of the exterior boundary; (B) monumentation of the exterior boundary and United States public land survey corners; (C) legal description; and (D) compliance with K.S.A. 58-2011, and amendments thereto.

(2) A townhouse plat shall be reviewed in accordance with paragraph (1), and shall also be reviewed for compliance with K.S.A. 58-3707, and amendments thereto.

(3) A condominium plat shall be reviewed in accordance with paragraph (1), and shall also be reviewed for compliance with K.S.A. 58-3115, and amendments thereto.

(4) The board of county commissioners may, by resolution, adopt additional review requirements, including, but not limited to, review of proposed new tracts for compliance with zoning ordinances and regulations.

(c) Costs for the plat review and approval may be charged to the applicant for plat approval. All costs charged pursuant to this section shall be based on actual costs of the review and approval as approved by the board of county commissioners. There shall be no charge to the applicant for the completion of a deficiency correction verification. If new deficiencies are identified on an amended plat, and were not present on the initial plat, then the cost of the additional review may be charged to the applicant, provided, such charge does not exceed the charge for the initial review.

(d) If a survey plat is required to be reviewed, the register of deeds for such county may:

(1) Accept a survey plat for recordation only after the county surveyor, or such surveyor's designee, signs the face of the plat; or

(2) accept the survey plat, filing fee and review fee prior to review, then deliver the plat along with the review fee to the county surveyor or such surveyor's designee. The county surveyor, or such surveyor's designee, shall return the plat to the register of deeds, or to the submitting land surveyor, if necessary, upon completion of the review.

(e) The county surveyor, or such surveyor's designee, shall complete any initial plat review and deliver such plat to the submitting land surveyor or the register of deeds, as the case may be, no later than eight business days after such plat was submitted for review. During the initial review of a plat, the county surveyor, or such surveyor's designee, shall identify deficiencies related to those items described in subsection (b), if applicable. The county surveyor, or such surveyor's designee, shall complete any amended plat review and deliver such amended plat and the deficiency correction verification to the submitting land surveyor or the register of deeds, as the case may be, no later than three business days after such amended plat was submitted for review.

(f) Except for subdivision plats, townhouse plats and condominium plats, the board of county commissioners may, by resolution, waive the requirement for review of survey plats prior to recording with the register of deeds.
