QUICK TIP– You can often get a great deal on a Tulsa home when you buy it with the ugliest and worst features (such as old flooring and wallpaper) and make it into something that is new and updated.
Tulsa Abstract Legislation- Over the last 10 years there has been Oklahoma legislation that has been introduced to eliminate abstracts in Oklahoma and the need for attorneys to examine them. Overall, people don’t like abstracts. Oklahoma is one of the only states left to have abstracts. Part of the problem is that in smaller cities and counties, it may take a longer time to get the abstract completed. In Tulsa county we don’t have the problem of an extended time to get the abstract.
In some of the southern counties there were some issues getting abstracts when trying to buy or sell properties. The Oklahoma House Bill was brought about to try to bring light to the problems that had been occurring. It would have eliminated the need for abstracts and the need for attorneys to go over them. The bill got the attention that was needed to help bring about the change to the problem areas in Oklahoma. The bill was more or less for the smaller counties that were taking too long to get the abstract updated. The newer bill brings fines and fees for those that are taking too long to bring the abstract up to date.
When it comes to Abstracting in Oklahoma, there are many things that need to be done to be licensed. You do not have to be an attorney. You go to apply for a license. When you are licensed you build your indexes. Building the index is a huge reason why there aren’t more Abstractors in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Abstract Board makes sure that the Abstractor is keeping the index up to date and producing abstracts whenever they are asked for it and also that the abstracting process is time effective.
Because the abstract helps prevent claims being filed on a property, the insurance is cheaper. By cancelling abstracts completely, there will be more claims because accuracy will go down and insurance would end up costing more.
There is something called Adverse Possession. Basically, adverse possession is when someone has occupied the land for a period of time, the property would now become theirs. Over the years homeowners will get the idea that because their fence was over the owners property line for 20 years the law says the property is now theirs. This is not exactly the case. There must be evidence that there were notices given. In situations of adverse possession and updating an abstract, we simply gather the information that attorneys and judges need to make the determination of who owns the property.

Why is it Important to Have Tulsa area Beekeepers? We need beekeepers because the bee population has declined due to pesticides and insecticides that are being used. Bees are getting diseases and pests are causing problems with bees. We need more beekeepers in Tulsa. We don’t encourage irresponsible beekeeping and we really want those who are willing to educate themselves and do the hard work that is required. If you are scared of bees, this is not for you. If you can’t handle labor intensive work during the heat and lift heavy things, this is not for you.
It is extremely common for Oklahoma homeowners to find a hive of bees inside a home, wall, etc. If you see swarms or hives of bees, there are people that will take care of this for you. It is important not to spray them and kill them. Have a Tulsa beekeeper come out and take the hive and bees away. Just spraying the bees might get the bees away but you will still have the hive and honey inside your walls. You can also check out “How to Handle a Swarm of Bees in Your Tulsa Home” for more information on who to contact for beekeeping and hive removal. For more information on Tulsa beekeeping contact Kevin Hyland at 918-779-9811.
