Subdivision involves dividing a larger piece of land into smaller areas. The process requires a high level of detail and precision to split the original space into usable pieces of land. As a result, this procedure can be complicated to carry out especially when dealing with council planning provisions and procedures that differ from council to council. Subdividing in Melbourne especially requires a high level of care due to its multitude of councils.
Despite its challenges, subdivision can be very beneficial depending on the needs of your property. Some common benefits include:
Increasing the potential of your property
Subdividing your land or property allows you to increase its potential. You can choose to rent out certain blocks of the subdivided property and develop others as you prefer. These options give you a great degree of flexibility on how you use your land provided you stay within council regulations.
Earn a profit on selling your land
Selling a large block of land can become more profitable with subdivision. Subdividing the property into smaller blocks of land allows you to sell to more buyers which can increase your overall profit margin.
Subdividing in Melbourne with a licensed land surveyor
To maximise the benefits of subdivision, it is best to work with a licensed land surveyor. Land surveyors help take out the stress in the subdivision process by acting as a bridge between you and the council.
The M.J. Reddie Surveys team in particular has experience in subdividing across many parts of Melbourne and has worked with a diverse range of councils. As a result, we are familiar with the processes of different councils and can liaise with them on your behalf. M.J. Reddie Surveys can also guide you through the subdivision approval process and submit a subdivision application to SPEAR on your behalf.
In addition to achieving approvals, licensed land surveyors also have a high attention to detail which helps minimise the margin for error in the subdivision process. As a result of the care they take with the process, you will be able to minimise risks of legal disputes or other costly mistakes in the future.
