It stands for "more or less" - and, to me, it's a strong hint that you will want a survey done, or you will at least want to see a plat map. Realtors are advised to use MOL and other disclaimers related to measurement because they are NOT surveyers or architects, and don't want to be held liable for exact figures. Example - I recently talked with a potential seller who said he had ten acres. Turns out the plat map shows only four acres... If I listed it as being 10 acres, someone might see a mis-representation lawsuit just waiting to happen. Actually, based on the plat map, I would have listed it as "4 acres, MOL".

MOL "Mortgage Origination License". Means they can do the loan for you as well as buy or sell the property. It's an endorsement. Not all agents have it.

MOL stands for Metropolitian Open Land - land which is protected from inappropriate development

You are correct if you are living in London, UK. However, in the US it stands for More or Less.

More or less. This is for liabilty reasons, so you aren't declaring exact size.
