land division process on your behalf

The land division process can take anywhere from 6 – 9 months from lodging the initial application to when the new Certificates of Title are issued. It all depends on the complexity of your specific land division (Torrens Title, Community Title or Community Strata Title), whether you have engaged a licensed surveyor from the early stages, and the extent of your approval conditions with government agencies.

With our expert assistance, you’ll be aware of any potential issues before you lodge your application. We help you get your application right by ensuring your site meets council requirements and regulations, reducing the risk of delays or complications down the track.
