Development Applications & Subdivision Certificates
A Subdivision occurs when a piece of land is divided into smaller parts, it can be a residential block divided in two, a large un-serviced property that has been re-zoned for development or a rural property. There are many reasons why a property might need to be subdivided and it is mandatory for a Registered land surveyor to undertake this process.
It requires a stringent process for approval to create a new Title for each new lot once registered with the NSW Land Registry Services (LRS).

Strata Community & Neighbourhood Title
A Strata Title Subdivision allows a building to be divided into multiple lots, commonly referred to as “strata titling” it allows individual ownership of units or apartments within a complex, for example a high-rise apartment building will most always be on Strata Title unless the entire building is owned by one person or entity.
A community title refers to properties with at least two lots which share a common area, such as a driveway or a nature strip, each owner still owns their individual house and land, but they all share common amenities including, the entrance gate and parking area. A set of community by-laws affect how each landowner can use or not use their land, similar to the way strata by-laws operate.
A Registered Land Surveyor creates a Strata Plan of Subdivision or Community Plan of Subdivision sometimes referred to as a Neighbourhood Plan of Subdivision, for lodgement and registration at the LRS.
To register a Lease of Land with the NSW Land Registry Services (LRS) a Plan of Survey showing the extend of land to be leased is required.
A Lease Plan is prepared by a Registered Land Surveyor.
Net Lettable Survey
A lettable area survey is a calculated survey of a floor space for leasing purposes. Lettable area surveys are typically used to help with rental calculations, property valuation, and lease documentation.
Obtaining a lettable area survey from a Registered Land Surveyor is vital to acquiring lettable areas to protect the interests of both tenants and owners.
If you are leasing part or all of a building, whether it’s retail, commercial or Industrial a Lease Plan will avoid future disputes relating to the lease area and extent.
