Subdivision involves dividing a larger piece of land into smaller areas. As a result, the subdivision processes can be expensive and complicated. This is especially relevant when dealing with Council planning provisions and procedures that differ Council to Council.
With M.J. Reddie Surveys’ experience, we can guide you through the development process to ensure a positive result.

How to Subdivide Land in Victoria
1. Title Search
A copy of the title and a plan diagram of the space of be subdivided is needed to get discussions about subdivision stated with your land surveyor or local council. You can get a copy of this at www.landata.vic.gov.au.
2. Hire a Licensed Land Surveyor
A licensed land surveying company (such as Reddie Surveys) will arrange a time to meet with you and measure/survey the land. Your land surveyor will then get documents together ready for the council to certify and approve. As licensed surveyors, we can assist with the initial design and will liaise with the council on your behalf to ensure their requirements are met.
3. Council Consideration and approval
Once your surveyor has completed the survey documents, the council receives the plan of subdivision for certification. Council will ensure the relevant requirements are met and sends the plan to all relevant authorities.
4. Legal Documents
A certificate of Title and relevant forms are drafted up by a conveyancer or legal professional and is then sent to Land Victoria.
5. Land Victoria
Land Victoria receive the documents which are then checked over thoroughly. ID of all parties is checked and verified. Once approved, the plan is then registered and the new title documents are issued.
