Title Evidence for Trust Land Acquisitions
Document Number: 2016-11489
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-05-16
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs
This rule deletes the requirement for fee-to-trust applicants to furnish title evidence that meets the ``Standards for the Preparation of Title Evidence in Land Acquisitions by the United States'' issued by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and replaces the requirement with a more targeted requirement for title evidence, because adherence to the DOJ standards is not required for acquisitions of land in trust for individual Indians or Indian tribes.
