The other side of the paper is the map which shows basic property detail including the boundaries, and occasionally an encroachment such as a fence.

Record of Survey

A record of survey is an official map prepared on 18 in. x 26 in. mylar that is prepared by a licensed land surveyor, reviewed by the County Surveyors Office, and then submitted to the County Recorder’s Office for recordation.
