What is a Subdivision Survey?

A subdivision survey may be required when an existing property needs to be divided. This can be for any number of reasons. They include, but are not limited to, estate settlement, mortgage requirements, development purposes, or to sell a portion of your property. To prepare a subdivision survey correctly, a boundary survey should be performed first to verify the dimensions and acreage of the original property. A subdivision survey can also be referred to as subdivision platting. Subdivision platting is the process of splitting a tract of land into smaller parcels.

The survey is completed when an owner desires to split a parcel of land into two or more parcels. When a lot is divided it is imperative that the newly formed lots both meet zoning and setback requirements. This shows monumentation and survey data on a map in conformance with local subdivision ordinance and the Subdivision Map Act. Both of the new lots will need to meet the minimum requirements for road frontage and square footage for their particular zoning district or the plan will be rejected. The subdivision ordinance gives standards for designating residential and commercial lots, roads (rights-of-way), parkland dedication, drainage and utility easements, and how city services will be extended to each lot. These standards are created to improve public health and safety.
