The plot plan, also called the lot plan, is a scale drawing with a wealth of useful information. Among a few things this document can confirm are, structure dimensions, true north, easements, property lines, elevation and distances.

The plot plan for a property can be often obtained through the developer, or the city or county offices. If the information does not exist through these sources, then a surveyor could be hired to create a plot plan.
