The test of the adequacy of a land description is if a surveyor, from the description, can locate the subject property on the ground. To write an adequate description, it is important to understand how a competent surveyor properly uses the description. When writing a description, a proper understanding of the true purpose of measurements as well as an understanding of history and how to deal with conflicting evidence is necessary. We will discuss how an experienced boundary surveyor uses a description to identify the land in question and determine the intent of the parties.
