Every council has unique regulations dictating the minimum area of an individual block. This in-turn will impact if your existing land can be subdivided, the number of lots it may be subdivided into, and the type of title (Torrens, Community…) which can be granted to the subdivided lots.

Our registered conveyancers have assisted hundreds of clients discover the true potential of their real estate assets, and successfully subdivide, develop, sell and settle on the transactions.

Contact JKA & Co for an obligation free discussion of your possibilities.

It is strongly unadvisable to begin any construction works prior to the completion of a subdivision process. Doing so will almost certainly mean the correct council approvals have not been granted for the construction, leading to devastating consequences down the line.

 

You must ensure the local council has granted a subdivision approval before starting any construction works.

 

We note that the subdivision approval from council is distinctly different to the Land Titles Office’s preparation of the certificate of title for each subdivided lot. JKA & Co can provided specific advice for your individual circumstances if you are looking to fast track the construction and sale of a subdivided property.

In Conclusion

Subdivision is a complex process that will often require the input of a registered conveyancer like JKA & Co Conveyancing. The process is often profitable, despite some initial costs for conveyancing works and government approval fees.

Subdivision can increase your land value and return on investment. This can be the case whether you are simply selling subdivided land or developing (constructing).

A subdivision is a process for dividing land into smaller, more useable pieces.

The subdivision of land often occurs with the intention to sell plots (a.k.a lot division).

This means that landowners may want to subdivide their property so they can build separate homes or commercial buildings on each plot while maintaining ownership over all of them. Alternatively, they may choose to sell all subdivided plots to a developer, which can often fetch a higher selling price due to the added value provided.
