A plat map is a diagram used to show how property is divided within a county, city, or neighborhood. It serves as a guide to a tract of land that has been created by licensed surveyors, though it is NOT the same as an actual survey. It is a good starting point to understand your property boundaries.

A plat map contains a wealth of information, including parcel number, lot number, land size, boundary locations, and nearby streets.
