    I have a question about the front foot of the property. I am confusing these terms.

    The front foot is the distance from the left border to the right border of the property and

    The depth is the distance from the front street to the end of the back yard.

    Is it right?

    How about the width? is it the same as front foot or depth? Please help.

    Thank you

    "Front Feet" is 'normally' the term used for lineal feet of water frontage. It can also be used for the lineal feet of street frontage.

    "Set Back" is the term typically used for how many feet away from the property line a structure should be or is. There are Front, Rear and Side set backs which can all be different amounts, depending upon zoning, building codes, etc.
