Plot Plans

The Lot and Plot Plans

A lot plan is a plan developed to scale showing property lines, bearings and distance, true north, easements, setbacks, right-of-ways, sidewalks, streets and boulevards. The plot plan shows the lot with the structures accurately located on it. Plot plan information is usually available from the developer, or the city or county offices. Completed plot plans can be obtained for most new developments. A surveyor may need to be hired to accurately identify this information on older properties.
