Love the inbox.Â OTG send me this link.Â I promise you, underwriting at title companies have come to a stand still while title officers argue the esoteric nuances of this decision.Â Sadly, they’re the only ones that care.
The structures were built landward of the mean-high-water line (that is, were built lawfully, and on the homeownersâ€™ own land), but because of continuing erosion the structures in part came to lie waterward of the â€œtheoreticalâ€ mean-high-water lineâ€”waterward, that is, as that line would have existed had there not been those structures.
This is why I find that interesting.Â See where the tide is marked on that map?Â Does that decision mean the Feds own the Embarcadero Center?Â And 101 California and everything on California street all the way to just past Sansome.Â Surf’s up Bra.
Doesn’t seem to be a particularly well thought out decision, especially from a federal court. The ensuing gnashing of teeth should be interesting.Â Talk amongst yourselves.
But first, a quick moment of lunacy.
