Whether you’re looking to boost your nest egg before retirement or considering building a development portfolio, subdivision can be a lucrative move. It can also have significant tax benefits in some situations. It’s also worth considering the full costs of subdivision before deciding to jump in, including the change in value of your current property, council fees, consulting fees and more.
The first step is always about feasibility. Things like making sure you have enough land to meet subdivision requirements or that there aren’t any restrictions on your current title that would keep you from subdividing.

This is the complex part of making sure all the information is correct, all the appropriate consents are applied for, and every detail that could impact your application to subdivide is considered.Get in touch
Once all the information is gathered, it’s time to lodge your application and wait. Some aspects of the process have required wait times, meaning there is no rushing the process.Get in touch
Providing thorough information in the steps above increases the chances that your application will be approved. After that, you’ll be able to get the works done, survey completed, titles issued and your land will be officially subdivided. In most cases, this is when you can start the next step of the process, whether that’s building or listing the newly subdivided land.
Depending on the scale of your project, this step could take a few weeks, or over a year. We will be be able to advise on your estimated timeframe to complete the development.
Legally you will need to hire a surveyor to do the surveying work for your application. The rest of the process can be done by any lay person, but there are some serious risks involved in doing it yourself. Not all the information required is readily accessible or spelled out in a handy list. Things can be easily missed, especially if you’ve never been through the process before.
