I'm working on an FHA MFG purchase appraisal with multiple issues (next to a major highway, HUD data missing, attached covered patio, etc.) All items I have under control...but I noticed this in the legal description:

L 8 EASE OF RECORD & TOG/W COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF DRAINAGE SYSTEM AS STATED ON PLAT SEG P-M-1031

The subject has a private septic system and public water service. I don't recall seeing a legal like this, so any information would be greatly appreciated!

For most rural properties in this area part of all deeds states subject to easements, public drains, etc, though they may not be individually listed.
On the property cards often there is additional coding in the leagal description stating what legal drains may have a tax from time to time. Some of these dains cover several countie and others a few hundred acres. On the tax card they are often only denoted in a year a tax is charged. More detailed trasurer records may indicate all that might apply. In this area is is ditches, rural bridges, public drains (may be buried tile) and such.
