This paper explores the importance of maps and plats in determining property boundaries. When called for in a property description, maps and plats become a part of the description “as much as if [they] were expressly recited in the deed itself.” Their significance in establishing legal boundaries, however, depends on several factors. These include the intention of the parties involved, the stability and certainty of elements in the deed, and whether there is evidence of original lines run on the ground. The relevancy of field notes will also be discussed. Taken together, the concluding, legal principle is that maps generally do not prevail over surveys and field notes in determining boundaries.
