    10 Things To Consider For Subdivision & Consolidation Applications


    • The Plan of Subdivision or Consolidation
    • Statement of Compliance
    • Surveyor’s Report
    • Abstract of field Records
    • Street Addressing
    • Application Form 10
    • Consent of the Mortgagor
    • Appropriate documentation if an Owners Corporation is to be created
    • Multiple titles – more than two parcels of land
    • Issues relating to Titles held by different parties

    There are many different reasons to subdivide or consolidate land

    One of the most popular reasons in today’s times is to maximise the land you currently own by subdividing to allow the building of more than one dwelling.

    As Melbourne’s population grows, councils are rezoning land to allow a greater density of dwellings. Buying the house next door, consolidating the land into a bigger parcel, and then building an apartment building is now common practice.

    Our skilled and experienced Property Lawyers can advise you as to what are the requirements for a subdivision or consolidation.
