Where can i find legal description of real estate

If the property is located in CA, call any title insurance company (First American, Chicago, Stewart, etc) asjk for customer service. Give them the address of the property and ask them to email you the "legal description". There is no charge for this service.
If my answer is "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please acknowledge and mark it so. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I have been practicing law since 1976 serving thousands of clients with successful legal experience with cases like yours. My response is often general in nature because all facts are unknown to me. Specific answers require knowledge of all the relevant facts of your case. Follow up questions are invited. You are not my client and I am not your attorney. This advice is given in the spirit of the AVVO platform and is based on general legal principles. You become a client when you enter into a formal retainer agreement with me.
The best place to check is the deed, which usually contains such information. If you do not see it there, you might check with your local county tax and property records departments. Best wishes to you.
