Under existing law, the county commission of a county is required to approve any proposed plat for the subdivision of land and issue a permit to develop the land after a review of the plat by the county engineer or his or her designee. This law does not apply to the sale or deed of land by the owner to an immediate family member
This bill would require any plat of a subdivision of land outside of the corporate limits of a municipality to state affirmatively whether or not the county commission has agreed to accept responsibility for maintenance of any roads on the plat prior to the county commission approving the plat. The bill would also require any contract for the sale of a lot or deed to a homeowner to affirmatively state the same information
