Land is a thing. A thing is divisible. Given the purpose of the land owner or land user, it can be transformed in different ways: by consolidating several plots or dividing one plot into parts.
Where a land plot needs to be divided between the co-owners, a part of the land needs to be alienated to a third party, there is a intention to waive the title to the specific area or, vice versa, to use it efficiently and increase the development area, the specific procedure prescribed by the law has to be completed.
The action algorithm will differ subject to how the applicant intends to dispose of the property and to whether it is leased land.
For instance, division of the private land plot requires no consent of any authorities. Instead, a leased municipal land plot may only be divided by the city council’s consent.
In any case, the land surveying organisation that will help visualise your ideas of new boundaries and configuration of the area in use should be selected carefully. Moreover, it must be noted that division or consolidation creates a new object of civil rights, but the latter inherits the main characteristics from the primary plot(s): intended use, restrictions and encumbrances, external boundaries of the configuration, and rights.
The item will change following the adequate land surveying works: the divided land plot or the consolidated land plots will cease to exist, which in its turn will result in amendments to the title documents as well as registration of the title with the State Register of Rights to Newly Created Items.
Synergy of an experienced lawyer and a land surveyor is a key to successful achievement of the ultimate goal.
