Property must be distinguished in writing which goes back to the original thirteen colonies.
In order to prepare a survey, there must be a governing body that maintains records and not some outlaw society of people claiming they own land without any official record. Early in colonial America there was a novel undertaking of a record system to keep track of ownership of property. This is known as the metes and bounds system, which identified land by naming the adjoining owners and physical limits (the bounds) and a report of the dimensions (the metes). This video reviews the three different ways to keep track of property – metes and bounds, the United States Public Land System, and the platted subdivision system.
