Survey Legal Description

Recommended Posts

Is there someone available that help me interpret a legal description of a property. I need to draw the property and have a legal description that I do not understand. The description comes from the tax assessor's office.

 

Legal Description:

W348.56 SW SW LESS N601.53 THEREOF & LESS W50 N272.12 S APR 718.47 W348.56 SW SW & LESS BEG SWC SW TH N APR 446.35 E30 S APR 195.63 CRV RT APR 247.83 SE APR 95.43 S APR 148.50 W348.56 POB SEC 1 19 10 3.524ACS

 

Below is the picture provided by the assessor web site:

Why not get an actual survey done by a survey company with their stamp?

Time and money.  The client needs just a simple and not accurate property drawing, showing existing buildings for a meeting with the zoning board. If the zoning board will change the zoning from commercial to agriculture then the client will proceed to the next step which would include a survey. A survey would also take several weeks to complete and the meeting is next week.

I would love to know what all that information in the legal description means as it does not seem to follow any known standard protocol, but I did find something online while searching that may be helpful.

Thank you ChopSaw. I had not found that plat map. I did find others at the assessor web site.

I too would like to know the nomenclature of the legal description. I've never seen it before. I sent it to a surveyor I work with on occasion. If he can decipher it I will let you know.

FYI, first thing to check looking for a property boundary is internet search "county name GIS map".  Tulsa's is a little more rudimentary than most, but that's where Chopsaws file is from.  On some of these abbreviated legals it almost seems an automated program to abbreviate the legals.

 

A brief rundown:

W - west

SW SW - Southwest quarter of the southwest quarter of referenced section

N - North

BEG - Beginning

SWC - Southwest corner

SW TH - Southwest third (though that would be an awkward description)

APR - Approximate

CRV RT - curve to the right

APR - approx. distance along the curve

POB - Point of beginning

ACS - acres
