54.211 Certified copy of survey; recordation; exemptions.
(1) Whenever lands are surveyed into 4 parcels or less, or a greater number when such parcels are of 10 acres or more, or any boundary survey where permanent corners are monumented, a certified copy may be recorded in the office of the register of deeds in the county in which the land is situated, if such survey meets the requirements of this act.
(2) If a survey is made for the purposes of describing the parcel in a conveyance of title, a certified copy of that survey shall be recorded at the time of recording the conveyance of title with the register of deeds in the county in which the land is situated. The requirements of this act are in addition to Act No. 288 of the Public Acts of 1967, as amended, being sections 560.101 to 560.923 of the Compiled Laws of 1948. Land platted in accordance with Act No. 288 of the Public Acts of 1967, as amended, or land previously surveyed and recorded and for which no change in boundary description is made from a previously recorded survey need not be recorded. Surveys solely for mortgage certificate purposes need not be recorded.

Compiler's Notes: In the second sentence of subsection (2), the reference to “sections 560.101 to 560.923 of the Compiled Laws of 1948” evidently should read “sections 560.101 to 560.293 of the Compiled Laws of 1948.”
