Altering the boundaries of two or more properties
A boundary adjustment is the legal process of altering the boundaries of two or more properties. This process can be used to make a property larger or smaller by taking land from one property and adding it to another.
A boundary adjustment can be a great solution for property owners who want to:
- Add land to their property to create more space
- Subdivide land into smaller lots for sale or development
- Rectify title issues or encroachments
- Combine two or more properties into a single lot
In order to undertake a boundary adjustment, you will need to follow the legal process set out in the Resource Management Act 1991 and the Local Government Act 2002. This process involves obtaining resource consent and/or building consent from the local council.
