Q. Where can I find legal descriptions of properties if client can't find old deed or closing papers? Is there a general web page to find these?

A. The best place to get legal description is from the title search. I only get a title search after I have the property under contract. Before I have the property under contract I will get legal descriptions from the seller's docs. You could also go down to the courthouse where the property is

I recommend that you get the property under contract and then order a title search.
