Questions & Answers
“I bought property in a county development 10 years ago. The community planning department is trying to impose $750 dollars a day fine because I have built structures on land that they claim to be in a wetland. None of the other lots surrounding me have been bothered because they have been supposedly grandfathered in. I am paying Recreational property taxes and not Wetland taxes that is significantly cheaper. The EPAs new land laws are the ones causing me trouble. It also says on my Deed to the property that I can Do whatever I want to the land forever signed by several commissioners. I am also farming on the land to survive and they are claiming that I am not able to do so. I am looking into a temporary restraining order to stop them. I have read your information over and over several times. I think I am on the right track thanks to your information. I have had fear of losing my property to them because I cannot afford the fines and I am not in a situation to afford an attorney. I would appreciate any further help you might be able to provide. Thanks in advance..”
I’d research “land Patent” and “allodial title”. Also look up the words you are using, such as Deed, farming, property, recreational, Wetland, taxes, EPA (who are they and how do their rules apply). Who is the Community Planning Department and what power do they have?
If you end up doing a restraining order, you will probably have to file an Oder to Show Cause along with a “Quiet Title Action”, also. Keep studying!
Also, should we be filling ANYTHING with the recorders office? Do we give them our property when we ask them to record our documents? Didn’t we use to record our own documents in our own personal bible for recording?

“I heard your video saying we can get an administrative remedy to stay out of court. Where can I find out exactly how to do that in Oregon? Thanks.”
Hi Eli, The administrative remedies are available in all states or at the federal level by going to the agency that you have an issue with and using their administrative procedures to adjudicate your case before it goes into court. (Agree with your adversary) This is like discovery, but it is done with the agency before it goes to court. Even if the case is in court, the remedies are still available until they have been exhausted. Look up ‘Exhaustion of administrative remedies’ in the Black’s Law Dictionary. I hope this helps. Zeke
