Woman Accidentally Purchased A Small Town In Nevada Owing 86 Lots After Copy And Paste Error

A woman accidentally purchased a tiny town in Nevada with 86 lots when buying her new home, the Reno Gazette Journal’s Jason Hidalgo reports.

The unnamed woman from Sparks, a city east of Reno, purchased a single-family home in Toll Brothers’ Stonebrook development in Spanish Springs that was valued at $594,481, according to data from Washoe County Assessor’s office cited in the Reno Gazette Journal’s report.

She ended up with 84 additional lots and two common spaces due to a copy-and-paste error in the deed to the property, the report added.

Cori Burke, chief deputy assessor for Washoe County, told the publication that a legal description from another Toll Brothers transfer appears to have been accidentally copied and pasted by the Westminster Title agency for Las Vegas. He told the Reno Gazette Journal that the agency has been notified so they can amend the issue.

Speaking to the local publication, Burke said the legal description in the transaction was officially recorded on July 25 and included “lots 1 through 85 … and Common Areas A and B.”

The 84 lots include some homes that have already been built and sold, according to the Reno Gazette Journal. At least 64 lots were put under the buyer’s name on Saturday, the publication added.

However, mistakes like these occur fairly often, according to Burke, who told the publication that this case was more interesting due to “the number of lots involved.”
