Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Modifies the proposed changes to GS 1-52, which now applies the three-year statute of limitations to actions against any professional land surveyor or any person acting under the surveyor's supervision or control for physical damage or economic or monetary loss due to negligence or a deficiency in the performance of surveying or platting. Now specifies that all causes of action under the subsection, other than those for physical damage, must commence within seven years from the specific last act or omission of the professional land surveyor or any person under the surveyor's supervision and control giving rise to the cause of action (previously, did not include commencement from the date of the specific last omission). 

Deletes proposed GS Chapter 47I, Notice of Settlement Act, as well as the conforming changes made to GS 47-18, GS 47-20, and GS 161-14.1, concerning priority and subsequent recordings. 

Deletes the proposed changes to Section 4.1 of SL 2018-80 regarding the effective dates of the act.

Deletes the changes to GS 47-17.1 that required the first page of all deeds or deeds of trust to be registered to show the name of the drafter (rather than the person or law firm who drafted the instrument) and clarified that the register of deeds is not required to verify or make inquiry concerning the capacity or authority of the person or entity shown as the drafter.

Makes conforming changes to the act's long title.
