Tailored advice through the step by step process of subdivisions and property development
In Victoria, subdivisions are regulated by the Subdivision Act 1988 (Vic).
The purpose of the legislation is to:
- Set out the procedure for subdivisions; and
- Regulate the management of common property and the constitution and operation of owners corporations.
Registration of plans of subdivision involves numerous facets which need to be considered. Including clear communication between your local council and other authorities, surveyors, mortgagees and the Registrar at the Land Titles Office Victoria.
Practically, if you are thinking about subdividing, you should first contact your Council. The Planner at the Council will provide you with the information you will need to submit an application for a planning permit, how the Council will certify your plan and any other required steps.
