The majority of property owners are never involved in the process of land subdivision. However sometimes the opportunity to subdivide your own property or a portion of land you are considering acquiring comes along. Where do you start?

You could call in to Council and ask to speak to a planning officer, who should be able to identify the rules which govern subdivision in your area, but they will not give you professional advice on whether to apply for a consent. An initial consultation with us (which is normally free of charge) will clarify the various issues involved. At this meeting we will determine whether you can subdivide and explain the processes involved in subdividing land, and some indication of the likely costs involved. It is helpful if you can come equipped with a copy of your title, or a recent rates notice which shows the legal description and size of the property.

There are other professionals whom you need to be talking with at any early stage. The reason for this is that there are many facets involved which include marketing, legal aspects, valuation, tax considerations, and of course the subdivision of the land itself.

As well as consulting with our clients neighbours on these matters, we are regularly called upon to provide advice to neighbours who have been approached to provide their consent to a proposed title transfer. If Council deems other parties are potentially adversely affected, then it is likely that the application would be notified to those parties, and potentially other persons as well.

Auckland Council recently notified and sought submissions on a number of Plan Changes which identified and protected specific trees and groups of trees throughout the region. If one of these trees was on your property, or you were a neighbour then you should have received notification of these proposals, and told how you could make a submission.

A number of our existing clients have properties and developments within these Districts and an office in Tauranga will provide these clients with the same high level of service that we currently provide from Pukekohe. We are also very fortunate that Carl Salmons, a senior licensed Surveyor has accepted the challenge to transfer to Tauranga with his family and build our Tauranga office.
