Measurement of  Land Area

Upon making the appropriate provisions for roads, schools, hospitals, markets, parks, and other amenities, the property is divided into residential plots. The plot number and size may be derived from the sketch for the layout. In the case of a resale home, the description of the home can be included in the Sale Deed and its location.

The area is usually provided in the form of Square Feet in the case of a residential house. However, the property area is listed in terms of Acres or Hectares in the case of agricultural land. You need to calculate the length and width of the available land to determine the land area. Click here to check the quick conversion of the area.
