In a planned development, the individually owned area is called the lot and typically consists of a piece of land and everything on it. The exact physical location of each lot within a project is shown on the recorded map for that project. Where there are walls or fences that sit on the border of two lots, ownership may be shared or may be owned by the Association unless the CC&Rs provide otherwise. Note that the map and/or CC&Rs for planned developments sometimes give neighbors and even the public the right to cross a private lot (a type of “easement”).
