Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to subdivide?
Creating separate titles is a good way of achieving financial flexibility by maximising the value of your site.
Do I need neighbours’ approval?
There is generally no need for neighbours’ approval, as long as you comply with planning requirements. Following our
assessment, we are happy to advise you.
Does available area matter?
Local Councils impose a minimum site area for vacant land subdivisions which we work towards to demonstrate the subdivision will fit onto the proposed site, subject to complying with the town planning rules for that zone.
What costs are involved?
Costs will vary greatly between each development as each block is unique. There will be primary costs involved with setting the site up ready for the subdivision, costs associated with investigating and obtaining reports on the block and council fees.
How long will it take?
The process usually takes around 6 – 9 months, depending on the individual site and any issues encountered.
Can you co-ordinate everything for me?
Yes, we have the contacts and experience required to get Council approvals to complete the subdivision.
What if there are large trees on my property?
So long as the trees are not ‘significant’ as defined by the Council, removal can usually occur without the requirement of replacement planting.
Torrens title / Community title?
Our team will explain each option, most people choose Torrens Title as it results in separate allotments with their own services.
When should I commence the subdivision process?
Once you have spoken to us, it’s best to lodge the application as soon as possible. When all the approvals have been received the building process can commence. Your home cannot be released to the construction phase until the subdivision plan has been deposited by the Lands Title Office.
