A subdivision takes place when existing parcels of land are divided into smaller parcels or when an existing boundary is altered. In New Zealand only Licensed Cadastral Surveyors are legally permitted to undertake the marking of boundaries.
THE SUBDIVISION PROCESS
Subdivision Design and Resource Consent:
Waihi Land Surveyors will design the subdivision to your requirements and apply for the necessary Resource Consents from the local authority.
The Legal Survey Of Subdivision:
Once the Resource Consent is obtained only a licensed surveyor can complete the legal survey and prepare the final dataset that will form part of New Zealand's official survey record.
Once the local authority has approved the subdivision and your surveyor has assisted you to meet any required Resource Consent conditions, we will lodge the legal survey with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) for approval.
Issue of Title:
On approval of your Surveyor's Plans by LINZ, title can issue once your solicitor has lodged the required legal documentation.
