So I was looking at deeds for a particular property and the legal description of a particular property is "Lot 1 Block A Lastname Subdivision". The appraisal district, however, gives a different legal description of that property: "S9928 - Lastname Sub, Block A, Lot 1, Acres 3.03".
It's clear that they match because the lastname matches as do the block and lot but the fact that they're different means that I can't just copy / paste the legal description from one database and search for it in the other database. And if "Lastname" were sufficiently generic there'd prob be nothing I could really latch onto to find the property info in the other DB.
So why do they differ in the first place?
