Deeds and Legal Descriptions Instruments

Deeds and/or legal descriptions are a written form of property boundaries and are legal instruments. There are several types used. Lots is a type that would be used for land within city limits, a Blanket or Global deed would be a single entry of a document page(s) that would express all of the land owned and their boundaries for a single entity or owner. 

Metes and Bounds

Then there is a more particular deed that is called Metes and Bounds that originates from England. Metes and bounds is a singular type, that is often used for describing the property borders for rural property. Also exclusive to this type is a selective native style of writing and it is in such a manner that can be complex. They will be delineated in feet, rods, furlongs, curves, concave curves just to name a few. This type of math is complicated to traverse and can best be translated with software that has a sort of AI [Artificial Intelligence], that is driven programically, to interpret this information.

In most cases, these can be auto drawn for you. We say most, because the language in this specific type of deed can be outlined in various ways. Therefore, we would be happy to update the software to satisfy any new variation that is needed.

Having the appropriate resources to map out property borders is great for not only verifying borders, but also for documentational purposes.
