Question: Why is lot and tract information so important in evaluating land positions?
Answer: Because you can't know where a specific lot or tract is if you're only given the number. Well and lease descriptions often reference lot numbers. It's a myth that lots 1-4 and 5-7 lie along the north and west sides of a section. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. In complex areas you have to reference the original documents to know where they are.
