What is a Subdivision Plat?
A subdivision plat is a survey, prepared by a licensed registered surveyor, of property describing the dimensions and location of lot lines, streets, and easements.

a. A drawing of the property boundaries
b. A written description of those boundaries
c. A dedication statement

Plats are reviewed and approved by the City and filed in the Plat Records of Parker County. A plat is not the property survey required by mortgage companies when closing the sale of property.
