Affidavit confirming error on a recorded plat.
Section 177.141, Florida Statutes 2006

177.141  Affidavit confirming error on a recorded plat.--In the event an error or omission in the data shown on any plat duly recorded under the provisions of this part is detected by subsequent examination or revealed by a retracement of the original survey of the lands shown on such recorded plat, the professional surveyor and mapper or legal entity responsible for the survey and the preparation of the plat as recorded may file an affidavit confirming that such error or omission was made. If applicable, the affidavit must state that the professional surveyor and mapper or legal entity has made a resurvey of the subject property in the recorded subdivision within the last 10 days and that no evidence existed on the ground that would conflict with the corrections as stated in the affidavit. The affidavit shall describe the nature and extent of such error or omission and the appropriate correction that in the affiant's professional opinion should be substituted for the erroneous data shown on the plat or added to the data on the plat. When such an affidavit is filed, it is the duty of the circuit court clerk to record the affidavit, and he or she must place in the margin of the recorded plat a notation that the affidavit has been filed, the date of filing, and the official book and page where it is recorded. The notation must also be placed on all copies of the plat used for reproduction purposes. The affidavit shall have no effect upon the validity of the plat.
