It is best to consult with a title company before starting the subdivision process.

They can verify that you own the lot free and clear, but also that there are no deed restrictions or covenants in place that would prevent sub-division.

The question is not complete to answer a complete answer. You can always subdivide and plat an acreage (land) it depends where the lands is situated and what you can build on it. So what I've done before to a land was that I hired a land surveyor company and they've don the rest which is this would be the best cost effective to this situation.

This is a good question! I would first reach out to the title company to see what the restrictions are when it comes to that land. Once you gather that information I would then reach out to that city to see how much it will cost to divide the land and what permits need to be in place. Lastly I would consult a real estate attorney to make sure that everything is on place to get it done.

As real estate agents are not licensed to provide legal advice. This means they cannot answer a legal question, even if they know the answer, without breaking the law. An agent could potentially lose her real estate license if she tried to practice law.

Unfortunately, because there’s no standard process when you subdivide land, there’s no standard cost.
The cost will depend on surveying and platting costs as well as the local application and fees. You will likely want to hire a title company to check for old deed restrictions and other potential issues that may complicate your project.

The first step would be to reach out to a title company to check any and all restrictions and to make sure its free and clear. After that check with the city and contact a surveyor. It’s always a good idea to contact an attorney if you aren’t sure of how things are going up to this point.

Edith, your question is not clear. However; I would start with the City or county the property is located. I would advise referring to the City or County planning and development department who usually regulates plating, subdividing, and subdivision approvals. The City and county have the restriction information as well. Depending on what's to be placed on the lots or to be built refer to the zoning department for other restrictions. I highly recommend you consult your broker when consulting outside of your area of expertise. If you don't have any idea how to advise in this area of real estate, stay in your lane to keep you and your broker out of court. Responses from this platform do not take the place of your broker's support and advice. All the best, Joe Ann Green-Broker-GRI

I do believe the investors best bet in accessing price and determining allocation in this case with several items going on would be to consult with a realtor that then instructs him to consult with all the proper entities that in this situation may require multiple contacts such as obtaining a Survey, obtaining information from and clearing title with aTitle Company,a Home Ownership Association can help, seek legal advice and the also check with the County department where the property is located.
