QPC Subdivision Process
At QPC we believe that the subdivision process shouldn’t be daunting and we can help make this an easy and rewarding collaboration from start to finish. That is why we use a simple step-by-step process we apply to all QPC projects.
1/ SITE FEASIBILITY
We start off by carrying out the correct due diligence, this involves us giving you the right advice that is specific to your property after viewing it and researching the options you have
We will review your property to assess whether it meets requirements for a subdivision project. This is free of charge and takes a couple of working days.
We work with reputable planning firms to provide you with a customised plan for your site.
The feasibility study is an essential step in the process and it formally ensures that a subdivision is permitted and that all the relevant Council requirements can be met. This takes between 10-15 working days.
One of our project managers will meet with you onsite to discuss the feasibility study results and assess your requirements.
2/ ENGINEERING & PROFESSIONAL REPORTS
The site feasibility stage above is a basic outline of what is possible based on experts input. In this stage there needs to be some costs incurred to gain reports and engineering to determine the exact cost required to subdivide your site and gain access to critical services such as drainage, water, power and what you can build on the sites.
Site Survey / Topographical Report
Drainage Inspection Report (CCTV)
Infrastructure Assessment Report
Land Management Report
SITE SPECIFIC REPORTS
Earthworks / Site Works Design
Access / Right of Way Design
Concept House Design & Structural Design (if required)
3/ COUNCIL APPLICATION/ DESIGN CONCEPTS
We will prepare and lodge all Council consent applications necessary for the approval of your subdivision on your behalf. At this stage we will also start any internal construction planning needed for commencement of the site works. During this stage it may also be critical to come up with concept plans for the house or houses to be built on the new titles you are creating. We involve the right designer for the specific site and clients requirements.
You can reference Councils Fees & Charges information at: https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/licences-regulations/Pages/default.aspx.
4/ SITE WORKS & SERVICES
In this stage all the services connections and infrastructure that have been designed and consented in the previous stages can be carried out. This work has to be in accordance to the designed plans and resource consent that has been granted. Once this work is completed the relevant paperwork is processed by surveyors to gain the new titles for the subdivided sections.
Service to boundary (Power, gas, water, phone)
Access / Right of way
Relocate an existing house
Removal of vegetation
Removal or Demolition of existing structures
This is where construction of the dwelling(s) starts if your Resource Consent has the build integrated as part of the application.
5/ SECTION 223/224(c) & LAND TRANSFER PLANS
Application to Council for the s.223/s.224(c) happens once the conditions of Subdivision Consent have been met. When all contribution fees have been paid, Council will sign off the s.224(c).
The Land Transfer Survey is completed and lodged along with the s.223/s.224(c) certificates for approval with Land Information NZ (LINZ).
6/ CERTIFICATES OF TITLE
Your Solicitor applies for and obtains the new Certificates of Title.
