What is Land Division?

Land division is the alteration of the boundaries of land and can be done under Part 19AB of the Real Property Act 1886 or the Community Titles Act 1996.

Land divisions are also known as sub-divisions. There are several different types of subdivisions. The main purpose of a subdivision is to increase profitability; legally distinguish a particular area, and further develop a town or city area. 

The sub-division or land divisions can be done for residential dwellings, as well as commercial lots. The minimum amount of land to be divided in Adelaide is 700 sqm.

I recently completed my third subdivision with Sawley Lock O’Callaghan. I have returned each time because the service is exemplary. I encountered many problems during the developments, yet the team at Sawley Lock O’Callaghan were able to liaise with Councils and other professional bodies to provide a solution on each occasion.

It is such a change to deal with people who are professional, helpful and pleasant. Of the four times we have used Sawley Lock O’Callaghan, it has always been the same, and it happens all too rarely these days. It was very much appreciated

I engaged Sawley Lock O’Callaghan for my subdivision project in 2015. They were fantastic to work with – diligent, thorough, intelligent, insightful, and tireless. They were extremely professional. As the project manager for my project, Max was always willing to listen yet never shy to give honest feedback.
