AI Grok explains metes and bounds

X.com’s Grok AI engine explains “Metes and bounds“:
A traditional way of describing land, or real property, in legal descriptions. It is a method used to define the boundaries of a piece of land using physical features, directions, and distances. The term “metes” refers to the distances and measurements of the land, while “bounds” refers to the natural or artificial markers, such as rivers, trees, or stakes, that are used to define the boundaries.
Here’s an example of a metes and bounds description:
“Beginning at a point marked by an iron stake on the north side of the road, thence running due north 100 feet to a large oak tree, thence running due east 50 feet to a stone wall, thence running along said stone wall due south 100 feet to a point on the road, thence running due west along said road 50 feet to the point of beginning.”
This method of land description is still used in some jurisdictions, although it has largely been replaced by the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) in the United States.
Richard MacDonald points to the need to re-survey one’s land to metes and bounds, while possibly omitting one square foot (that the CITY OF _____) could tax (see 2nd video below).
