PLATS.NET is a system developed by the Maryland State Archives, the Administrative Office of the Courts and Maryland Circuit Court Clerks to preserve and make accessible all plats filed with the Land Office and the Circuit Courts of Maryland.
Plats are cartography relating to land ownership. They represent in graphic and pictorial terms the boundaries, or metes and bounds, of properties as described in deeds. As such, plats are crucial to understanding and documenting the conveyance of land title in Maryland. Attorneys, realtors, surveyors, title searchers, and private citizens need to consult plats recorded in the Circuit Courts when researching property boundaries and land conveyances.
Users can search for plats currently in the custody of the Maryland State Archives. Users are encouraged to provide feedback and inform the Maryland State Archives of any problems encountered.
