What is an Unincorporated Area?

If a property is located outside the city limits or in a rural area, it may not be incorporated. The property likely does not have a physical street address as it is not attached to a particular city, town or municipality. The property is only referenced by its legal description.

While in most cases real property is incorporated, many rural areas have large plots of pasture or farm land that lie in unincorporated areas. You know your property is in an unincorporated area if your property was never assigned a physical street address.
