New Parcels from an approved Minor Subdivision or Certified Survey

My minor subdivision was approved, now what are my next steps?

This is a common question after a customer receives the e-mail or phone call that their minor subdivision was approved. The following steps could be taken, or the minor subdivision can just remain on file as approved.

  • A deed can be recorded, splitting the parcels as indicated on the survey from the approved minor subdivision. Typically this occurs when a party sells one of the newly described tracts or parcels. We suggest a title company or Real Estate Attorney be contacted to assist with this process
  • Tax roll record parcels can be established from the legal descriptions on the survey from the approved minor subdivision. This transaction does not get recorded & would be for tax roll record purposes only & assessed as new parcels for the following tax year. Fee owner and tax payer do not change.
  • If the minor subdivision involves a lot line exchange between different parties, deeds establishing the new lot lines would need to be recorded. Again we suggest contacting a title company or Real Estate Attorney to assist with this process.
