A Subdivision Certificate authorises the registration of the 'plan of subdivision' for lodgement with NSW Land and Property Information. The plan of subdivision identifies each of the allotments approved under the original consent (if required) or each allotment subject to an exempt boundary adjustment. The plan of subdivision is required to be prepared by a registered surveyor.
All types of subdivision (Torrens, Strata and Community Title) are required to be registered with NSW Land and Property Information before a new ‘allotment’ of a subdivision of land can be created.
The issue of a Subdivision Certificate confirms that the Principal Certifying Authority (Council or Accredited Certifier) is satisfied that works are completed in accordance with the applicable Development Consent and that the land is suitable to occupy.
