Lecture Outline Cover Boundary Surveys as needed by civil engineers to locate a site ( property) Sections covered: parts of 21-1 to 21-6 Figures discussed: 21-1, 21-2 Examples: all examples of property description within the sections discussed.
Boundary Surveys To define property boundaries, using plane surveying methods. Usually deal with small areas. Were applied as a early as 1400 BC, and still applied today. Importance for engineers: to define the project boundaries when needed.
Property Description A property is described by one or a combination of the following methods: Metes (to measure) and Bounds (boundary lines): Point of Beginning, well referenced, given coordinates if possible. Definite corners: given coordinates if possible Lengths and directions of property lines Names of adjoining property owners Areas fig 21-1 Read first description page 634
Block-and-Lot Adjoining parcels are subdivided into blocks and Lots. individual lots within the subdivided area are identified by block and lot number. Map books in the record s office give the location and dimensions of all lots and blocks. Example: Lot 34of Tract 12314 as per map recorded in book 232 pages 23 and 24of maps, in the office of the county recorder of Los Angeles area.
