What is the legal description of a property and where do I find it?

The legal description is a record of the real property (piece of land) that contains information that clearly identifies it such as property dimensions and boundaries. This description can be written in a few different forms and will typically appear on sales contracts and the property deed.
If it is not printed in the contract or blueprints, it can be found in the “Property Search” section of each individual county.
