A must commence and finish at the same identifiable point

A metes and bounds legal description begins at a well-defined point (point of beginning or POB) and follows the boundaries of a parcel of land, using directions and distances around the tract, and ends at the point of beginning. When properly written, it is acceptable and enforceable in all court jurisdictions, and can be created for any parcel of property. Oftentimes, a deed will contain two types of land description. Generally, a metes and bounds description is accompanied by a rectangular survey (or government survey) description or lot, block and tract description.
