Property subdivisions can entail a myriad of issues that need to be worked through and can prove to be a risky, exciting and potentially profitable venture for your clients. This module will take a practical approach to subdivisions from the viewpoint of the suburban developer and working effectively and efficiently with local government to give effect to consents.

This module will include:

  • A practical guide to the subdivision process with steps to follow to ease the process when acting for developers and to assist the interface with local government, including:
    • initial due diligence/title investigations
    • discussion of the different types of subdivisions and applicable requirements
    • review of Part 10 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) and the requirements on both the local government and land owners
    • reviewing resource and subdivision consents, including local government conditions and statutory timeframes for release of s 223 and s 224 certificates under the RMA
    • reading LT Plans and Unit Plans, and associated schedules showing required instruments for registration
  • Preparation for and deposit of subdivision plans and the registration of titles, including:
    • obtaining approved local government documentation, such as consent notices, easements, covenants, bonds
