Our areas of expertise

We understand that subdivisions and developments have a lot of moving parts, and it is important to keep things on track and on budget. We’ll work alongside you and your other advisors, and the Council to ensure that the subdivision process goes smoothly and you are kept fully updated on our progress along the way.

We’ll assist you with the entire subdivision process from

  • Purchasing the property
  • Liaising with your surveyor, engineer, planner, and the Council to obtain the subdivision consent, utilising our in-house resource management exports
  • Preparing the legal documents and terms so that you meet the Council’s consents requirements
  • Arranging for the smooth issue of the new titles
  • Selling down the subsequent sections to purchasers

Sales off the plans

Once we’ve completed the subdivision of your land, our team of experts will then help you complete the on-sale of the new titles to your purchasers, including preparing the sale contracts and dealing with any issues which pop up along the way.
