Changing Property Boundaries in Philadelphia

There are many reasons someone might need to subdivide or consolidate land lots. Everything from combining multiple lots in order to build your dream home to subdividing a large plot so that you can sell portions off will require you to adhere to city regulations. Failure to comply with local zoning and building codes can result in serious fines and can potentially derail your entire project.

Steps that you may need to take when subdividing or consolidating real estate in Philadelphia may include:

  • Research & Planning: Educate yourself on the basics of subdividing or consolidating land lots, as well as the legal ramifications involved.
  • Property Survey: Engage the services of a professional land surveyor to map out the existing boundaries of your property.
  • Check Zoning and Land Use Regulations: Research Philadelphia's zoning codes, land use policies, and development procedures. Ensure that your plan complies with these regulations.
  • Prepare a Plan: Draft a detailed plan of your proposed boundary changes, including the exact measurements of the new lots.
  • Submit Plans & Get Approvals: Having property boundaries changed is a complicated process, and you will need to secure various permissions and obtain permits and approvals for your plans.
  • Review Process: Await the review and approval process. Be prepared to address any issues that may arise.
  • Legal Documentation: Once approved, have a legal document drawn up to record the new property boundaries. You will need this when registering your new deed(s).
  • Real Estate Attorney Consultation: Throughout this process, consider consulting with a real estate attorney to guide you and ensure all legal issues are appropriately addressed.

From requesting a zoning permit to submitting your application to the Office of Property Assessment, subdividing or consolidating property in Philadelphia is a difficult process. You are strongly encouraged to work with an experienced real estate attorney, like ours at Pritzker Law Group, to help you.
