Amalgamating and subdividing lots

It is far from uncommon in community titles schemes for owners to purchase lots side by side and then want to amalgamate them, or to have a larger lot (usually a commercial one) they want to split into two separate titles.

This is not a simple process and will always need to involve the body corporate as it will mean changes to the Community Management Statement to either remove a lot or create another one. Consideration needs to be given to what the new lot entitlements will be along with what impact the change may have on the use of common property.

We have helped many clients through both of these processes, from preliminary advice to understand what the legal issues may be (and how to deal with them) through to negotiating with difficult bodies corporate to achieve the desired outcome along with preparing and lodging all of the required documents with the Titles Office.
