Subdivision Applications

What is a Subdivision?

Subdivision is the process of altering legal property boundaries and creating new parcels of land with individual legal descriptions and Parcel Identifiers (PID). There are several types of subdivision:

  • Fee Simple – subdividing land into two or more parcels.
  • Bare Land Strata – creates strata lots within one parcel of land where the owners of each strata lot have joint ownership over common lands (common property) within the Bare Land Strata Plan.
  • Building Strata – creates individual units within a building which have separate titles allowing each unit to be sold separately. However, each unit has joint ownership of common elements of the building or complex.
  • Phased Strata – either a Bare Land Strata or a Building Strata that is built out over several phases as regulated by the Strata Property Act.
  • Strata Conversion of an Existing Building or Dwelling – converts an existing building or dwelling (e.g. apartment building) to strata titled units for individual ownership.
