RECONFIGURING A LOT ( SUBDIVISION)
Reconfiguring a lot involves subdividing, or rearranging boundaries and the creation of easements used for property access. There a number of differing methods to reconfigure a lot including:
creating lots by subdividing another lot
rearranging the boundaries of multiple lots
dividing land into parts by agreement (other than a lease for a term, including renewal options, not exceeding 10
years) rendering different parts of a lot immediately available for separate disposition or separate occupation.
creating an easement giving access to a lot from a constructed road
If the reconfiguration involves subdivision, there are three (3) plan formats that are governed by the Land Titles Act.
They are: Standard, Volumetric; and Building.
Standard Format (land subdivision)
Boundaries of lots are shown on a plan
Lots are unlimited in height and depth
Commonly used for townhouses
Building Format (strata subdivision)
Boundaries are centre lines of walls, floors and ceilings
Used to create titles in “strata”
Typically used for high rise apartment buildings
Volumetric Format (airspace subdivision)
Use 3 dimensionally located points to identify position, shape and dimensions of each bounding surface
Use to subdivide levels of a building without creating a community titles scheme
Typically used in a “mixed use” building in combination with other format plans
