Loudoun Water participates in two types of easement recordation; Loudoun Water only easement plats and joint easements with Loudoun County. The language used for the Loudoun Water portion of deed is the same in either situation, but the addition of the county language for other easements being dedicated will need to be added according to the County process.
|Joint Loudoun Water – Loudoun County Deed of Easement||
In most cases the easement deed and plat will be a joint easement with Loudoun County. In this case, all drafts will follow the County process, which can be found on the Loudoun County website.
When all comments have been addressed on the deed and plat and the County Attorney has approved the deed, the signature set can be submitted to Loudoun Water for signature.
Loudoun Water requires one copy of the deed with original signatures and two copies of the plat with blue ink signature. Also, include this form with your submission and the letter from the County Attorney approving your deed.
After Loudoun Water has signed the deed they will notify you to pick up the deed and one copy of the plat. Bring this set to the County for signature and recordation. Please send the Loudoun Water project engineer the instrument number once it has been recorded.
Loudoun Water Only Deed of Easement
When the easements being dedicated are solely Loudoun Water easements, the process is similar except that all draft deeds and plats will be submitted directly to Loudoun Water. Once the Loudoun Water project engineer has approved the draft, a signature set can be submitted to Loudoun Water.
This submission set includes the original deed with all signatures except Loudoun Water, two plats with blue ink signatures, and this form.
Once the deed has been signed by Loudoun Water you may pick up the deed and one plat and have it recorded at the County Clerk’s Office. Please send the Loudoun Water project engineer the instrument number once it has been recorded.
