On a property deed, what does “Et Al” mean?

“et al.” is an acronym for the Latin phrase “et alia,” which means “and others.” It signifies that a list of things or individuals specified on the deed also includes others when it appears on a property deed.

The abbreviation “et al.” can also be used in a variety of different places. It’s commonly found in bibliographical entries and citations, particularly when mentioning a source with a long list of authors. The first author is listed in a footnote quoting a work with several authors, followed by the words “et al.” to denote the other authors.

“etc.” is a synonym for “et al.” that is significantly more commonly used. This acronym is short for the Latin phrase “et cetera,” and it basically means “and other things.”
