What is the Legal Description of Land?

The legal description of land, or a parcel of land, is the exact location of the parcel of land according to an established system. The description is legally sufficient if a competent surveyor can locate the parcel of land using that description. If someone is interested in conveying property to another person, there needs to be a detailed way of describing the boundaries of the property. A typical street address is not legally sufficient as it does not describe the boundaries of the property, only the general location.
