Learn what a lot means as a legal entity
A lot means a parcel of land under one ownership that constitutes, or is to constitute, a complete and separate functional unit of development, and that does not extend beyond the property lines along streets or alleys. A lot generally consists of a single Assessor's lot, but in some cases consists of a combination of contiguous Assessor's lots or portions of a lot.
Based on the location of the lot within a bloc and in relation to the adjacent streets, there are different types of lots:
· Corner lots are bounded on two or more adjoining sides by streets that intersect adjacent to such lot;
· Through lots have two or more opposite lot lines being contiguous with the street line, other than a corner lot, unless three or more lot lines of a corner lot are contiguous with a street line;
· Interior or Inner lots are located between two or more lots and is not a Corner or a Through Lot.
