    closing within say 0.25 feet is pretty remote
    Had a chat to our fully licensed surveyor, the tolerance of the closure really depends on what is being surveyed, if the surveyor was to do say a 10km road travis and miss by 0.25' 100mm he would be very happy, if he went out and measured a house allotment 4 corners and got the same misclose then he will be trying to figure what has happened and in the case here in AUS he would submit to the surveyors board field notes illustrating why possibly the Title needs to be adjusted. The common pratice here is a 50mm woooden peg with a nail at the actual title point so it can be a few mm off centre.

    I think the OP lost interest or moved on to something more important.

    Here in the US, neighbors will move fresh hubs, or stakes depending on the purpose, as we call the wooden pegs with a nail, if they come out back and find out their blackberry bush is in your yard after all.

    I worked with one original, unchanged legal description on a deed from 1871, being staked out due to a new fence, with one corner called out as Center of Stump. No sign of stump or marker anywhere near, but it has a pipe (rebar) marker now because it had a distance and bearing to where the stump used to be. It was 27 acres with eleven boundary lines and only missed closing by 0.120 feet

    wow, a lightning fast answer!
    Thanks to you all!
    The scan is part of the legal deed of the property and it is done by a professional according to the law and the council controlling their profession, and my opinion is the same as yours, I don't have any degree, but just by watching the drawing, it seems obvious to me that the methods they use to locate a property could be much better. It seems like if the same profession would use diffent techniques on different countries. I've seen several local deeds and all are like this one, some CW others CCW, they sometimes mention the magnetic declination, which in this area is neglectable but nothing, no geographic coordinates and no deviation from north. The compass is drawn on the paper, so north is 90ยบ, it would have been nice the man wrote somewhere the north angle on the first segment, but anyway, I'll survive.

    It became clear now that I do not have any bearing, I got confused on the translation and at first I thought the meaning of the word applied to my drawing.

    Special thanks to ReMark for providing me the draft. I'll keep drawing from that one until complete the whole perimeter. It doesn't matter If it doesn't close at the end, it's just to have a digital file to sneak at. The deed attachement, thou primitive, is the one which is the true one according to the law.

    Thanks. Paul.

    Apologies for my initial disparaging remarks, but you were presenting a survey with a convention, hitherto unknown to the wider world. Someone has re-invented the wheel, with academian tones and no acknowledgement of conventional surveying practices. The figure does have a certain logic to it and is consistent. It just needed someone to think it out.

    Personally, I would draw that figure line by line, and convert it into a polyline at the end.
