A subdivisions of land involves resource consent to change a title to land – usually into two or more lots, but also covers adjusting a boundary between lots, or create a way for multiple people to own housing units on the same land. All subdivisions are different and require co-ordination between the surveyor, Council and lawyers.
It is difficult to accurately estimate the cost to complete a subdivision without reviewing the applicable resource consent and LT Plan and assessing the legal work required. As a ball park figure, legal fees for subdivisions are commonly around one-third of the surveying costs and commonly are between $6,000 to $10,000 plus GST and disbursements, depending on the complexity and work involved. Please contact us any time to discuss your requirements and scope out a more actual fee for your specific subdivision.
All subdivision instructions require a retainer payment at the time of engagement.
