THE LAND DIVISION PROCESS
Step 1: Preliminary Assessment
The first thing you need to do if you’re considering a land division is to check with your local council regarding their development plan for the area. For a preliminary assessment, you’ll need to deal with the planning area of your local council.
Step 2: Engage a Professional Conveyancer
For the next step, you need a professional conveyancing who can begin to assist you with progressing your division proposal. We can advise and deal with all documentation, applications and plans required meaning that we take the stress away from you.
Step 3: The Approvals Process
We’ll work on your behalf to survey the property and arrange for approvals from Development Assessment Commission Council, SA Water and ETSA.
Once approval is gained and fees are paid we can lodge a copy of these plans at the Lands Titles Office.
We also prepare an Application for the Land Division or Community Title, which you’ll be required simply to sign.
Step 4: Final Bank Approval
You may need to wait for the bank to approve your application, which can be a lengthy process if the documents need to go interstate.
Did you know that the Lands Titles Office approve a land division in 2 separate stages?
- Firstly, they give approval on the land division plans, which we assist you with
- Secondly, the file is moved to the documentation department where the application is checked and approved.
