SUBDIVISIONS/MERGERS/LOT LINE ADJUSTMENTS
Subdivisioning is the process of creating a new parcel of land out of a parent tract. Lot merging is the process of combining parcels of land into a larger tract of land. Lot line adjustments are any changes in the legal boundary between adjoining parcels of land.
The new lot lines are delineated by metes-and-bounds and are an important part of planning for development of the parcel.
These are usually required if you are planning to:
- Build a second building on land that you own by subdividing
- Build a larger building by merging adjoining land
- Develop a community from a larger parent tract by dividing the land
- Adjusting a Lot line with your adjoining neighbor by way of a boundary line agreement
