Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Aspects That Determine the Land Divisions You Should Undertake

Troy Medina

There are three major types of land divisions in the country. These are large-scale land divisions that involve many lots, dividing one more substantial piece of land into two or more lots and changing the existing boundaries to a particular piece of land. 

Depending on the land location and the type of title, there are other factors that determine the land division process. The most common examples of titles include the community and strata titles. It is advisable to consider these factors when deciding on how to subdivide your land for development. 

The Possible Cost of Development

Different land types have specific laws on development. To start with, the documents you need to process for a boundary reallocation might not be the same with what you will need when subdividing a larger piece of land into smaller lots. 

Similarly, the cost of getting a Torrens title might be different from the cost of getting a community title. Other development costs include water, electricity, sewer fees and some other survey costs. Weigh all possible options and pick the one which works best for you.

Where to Get Professional Advice

You will need a professional land surveyor's advice and the guidance of a real estate agent and other professionals involved in subdividing and allotting land. Each of these professionals have a fee they charge for their services, and you have to factor that into your budget.

The benefit of hiring them is that they will simplify the process for you. They have experience with the application processes. They understand what to do to sail through the hurdles in the lands offices and get the permits you need as soon as possible. Ask for referrals and testimonials, and pick a surveyor who seems best qualified for the job.

Drafting the Proposal

You will only get approval for subdivision when you have handed in a proposal, and the lands office inspects and approves it. The plan is the part of the subdivision process you need to handle with utmost care. Before drawing your proposal, study the character of the locality and development plan requirements. Some of the most common conditions are allotment size, area of the site and location of the road.

When you seek guidance from a professional surveyor, you simplify the process of land subdivision for development. Take time and choose qualified and trusted surveyors for the best service. If you don't have any of them in mind, you can seek help from your friends and relatives or perhaps visit a land registration office near you seek help.
