Horizon licensed surveyors provide the best surveying services in Perth. We specialise in residential land surveys, site & subdivision surveys

Subdivisions are a delicate area of property law which, if not managed right, can lead to complications and delays when it comes to property sales and land development. Make a mess of your subdivision plans, and it can prove very costly to you.

The most common scenarios where people subdivide land are:

property developers selling off portions of land as part of development projects, and

General public wishing to sell off part of the property they own by way of a green title subdivision or a Survey Strata Subdivision or a Strata (Built) subdivision. 

There can be other situations where subdivision is desirable as well. In all cases, no matter what the reason may be, there are distinct steps which must be undertaken in order for the property to be successfully subdivided.

1. Consult a licensed surveyor

This is the best way to find out all the information you need to know about licensing and permits without putting in a lot of hard work on your own. Whenever you need any information related to anything that deals with Subdivision of land, Horizon Surveys should be your choice.

Our experience as subdivision surveyors in Perth is very extensive. We can provide all the details you need to make informed choices about your subdivision plans. There are many things to consider including the Zoning of the land, the required area size for the proposed lots, access and whether a battle-axe or a side by side type scenario is best. 

2. Perform an initial property survey

The information you obtain from your property survey will allow you to make detailed plans before you apply to subdivide your land, which means you already know all the details of exactly what you want to do.

Deciding on an appropriate boundary line may seem like a simple task, but in fact there are so many things you'll need to take into account. For example there may be minimum and maximum area limits applying to the subdivision.

The geographical features of your land could also going to be decisive in planning your subdivisions. Our experience shows that in Perth, contour surveys are essential to help you get an accurate idea of how your land is really shaped and for submitting to the WAPC. Just looking at a two dimensional map doesn't always tell the whole story, and it's so much easier to make mistakes when you don't have the full picture.

3. Submit the applications

Subdivisions (Green Title and Survey Strata ) in Western Australia are handled by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC). Before your land can actually be subdivided, your subdivision plans must be approved by the WAPC.

Often you'll be given the impression that you need to do all the work yourself, but when you engage Horizon Surveys as your consultants, we can draw up all the plans and submit the necessary paperwork for you.

As part of the application process, we will advise the submit to the WAPC of a copy of the results of your site survey in Perth or other areas of Western Australia, with the proposal to subdivide the land and then it is simply a matter of waiting for the plan to be approved with certain conditions.

Once the plan is approved (conditionally), you can then formally subdivide the land. The waiting process does take some time, because the government allows departments (ie Water Corporation, Western Power and Local governments) people the opportunity to provide their input and requirements to your subdivision plans 

4. React to the decision

Generally the WAPC will approve the application to subdivide upon you fulfilling certain conditions (generally these include bot not limited to:

providing Underground power,

 providing sewer connection/s, and the paying of Headworks charges,

providing appropriate Carparking and storage areas in certain cases.

there also maybe infrastructure and drainage charges levied by Local Gvt in certain areas.

Subdividing land should be simple

It definitely should be simple to subdivide land, but unfortunately there are many areas it can go astray. To give your subdivision the best chance of success, consult with Horizon Surveys from the first moment you make the decision to subdivide.

You have nothing to lose by doing so by working with Horizon Surveys from the start, you'll avoid many of the traps that others blunder into when attempting a property subdivision.

Our long experience and extensive knowledge of property subdivision and the legal process which must take place can be put to work for your advantage.
