Losee v. Jones

In Losee v. Jones, 120 Utah 385, 395, 235 P.2d 132, 137 (1951), the final distance call of the property description failed to return to the point of beginning; that call concluded with "thence east 2.5 chains more or less to place of beginning." 120 Utah at 395, 235 P.2d at 137. The Court held that such a description sufficiently described the property because "the intention of the grantor was for the tract to close by extending the final call to place of beginning, and the words 'more or less' constitute a tolerance factor which enables this extension of the final distance, beyond the 2.5 chains, in order that the tract close." Id.
