How long does the subdivision process take?
The answer this this question depends on how big the subdivision is, where it’s located and how much engineering work is required. As a very broad rule of thumb – for a 2 lot urban subdivision, cutting off your back section, we allow 9 – 12 months from instruction to obtaining title. The subdivision process can be broken down in to 4 main parts: obtaining subdivision consent from the Council, undertaking engineering design and installing new services and access, the legal survey which includes placing new boundary pegs, and finally sign off from Council and obtaining the new titles from Land Information New Zealand. Each of these stages has varying degrees of complexity depending on your project. For a detailed timeline specific to your project please contact us.
