WATER RIGHTS ADDENDA
If submitting a deed that conveys a fee simple title to land or if conveying water rights without conveying title to land, a water rights addendum must be included with the deed when it is presented for recording.
A water rights addendum identifies and describes the water rights that are transferred under an applicable deed or states that no water rights are transferred under the applicable deed.
The grantor is required to complete and sign the water rights addendum. The grantee should sign the addendum to acknowledge receipt. The grantee's signature can be a facsimile or done by electronic means.
A recorded document imparts notice of its contents regardless of any defect, irregularity, or omission in its execution, attestation, or acknowledgment. A certified copy of a recorded document is admissible as evidence to the same extent the original document would be admissible as evidence.
