Unplatted Property Law & Legal Definition

Unplatted property refers to land that has not been platted or plotted. It is simply defined by the "metes and bounds" description (such as 42ºN12'3"E 200 feet; then 65ºN0'0"E 1000 feet). A plat is a map drawn to scale showing the divisions of a piece of land. It gives details of the land, its boundaries, lots, roads, and easements.
