Auckland is made up of 13 Council Wards. These are areas of the city defined by the Auckland Council, which are used as an indicator of population. Council wards are created to ensure a balanced spread of services across the city, to allow for an equal voice in local representation, and to provide a level of geographic and demographic diversity. They are named after the suburb they cover, or after the local body which they represent.
If you are thinking about buying a new property, you will need to know how to divide your section.
You can choose to subdivide a section either horizontally or vertically. Generally, people will choose to divide their sections either 2 x 2 or 3 x 3. This is because a three-bedroom home takes up three lots whereas a four-bedroom home can fit into two lots. However, not all sections are created equal. Some will be much easier to divide than others, so be sure to check with your Auckland real estate agent before making your final decision.
Here is a super informative post that goes into more detail.
You will also want to know how to subdivide your section, if you are selling your property.
You can either divide your lot by a grid or by a road. If you opt for a grid, you will need to create lots within the grid system. You will need to look at the zoning to make sure that your lot is able to be developed legally. If you are planning on dividing your lot by a road, you will need to check the road layout to make sure that your lot is not too small to be subdivided.
There are several ways to divide a section of land, all of which will work under the right circumstances.
If you want to subdivide a section of land in Auckland, you will need to look at a map of the region and determine the parcel’s location. You will need to check the location of any roads, and ensure you don’t run into any existing utilities. Once you have a general idea of the parcel’s location, you’ll need to consider the parcel’s shape and size. Common ways to divide a section of land include the strip method, lot-line method, and parcel method.
If you are buying a small section of land, you may want to consider purchasing a portion of a larger section, allowing you to subdivide it in the future.
Buying a section of land is a great way to increase your property portfolio. However, if you don’t want to sell the whole lot, you could consider buying a portion of a larger section and then subdividing your lot in the future. When you buy a section, this gives you the option to sell your lot or to subdivide it.
This is known as a “Section 10.”
When an Auckland property is subdivided you need to work with a certified engineer to ensure the property is able to support the extra load. There are also restrictions on how much you can reduce the lot size – the minimum lot size is 300m2 and the maximum is 1 hectare. If the lot size is less than 300m2 you need to pay an extra fee to your council.
If you are purchasing a larger piece of land, you may want to consider purchasing a portion of a larger section, and then subdividing it in the future.
If you are interested in purchasing a larger section of a property and potentially subdividing it later on, it is important to understand the legal processes behind subdividing a section. The size of the section you wish to purchase will determine whether you will need a section amalgamation or a section subdivision. If you are interested in subdividing a larger section, you will likely need to hire an experienced real estate agent to help you with the process. A section amalgamation is the process of combining two or more sections of a piece of property into one larger section. If you are considering a section amalgamation, it is important to find out if the adjoining properties are registered with the New Zealand Home Owners’ Association (HOA), as you will need to seek the consent of the existing HOA before amalgamating the properties.
This is known as a “Section 50.”
Subdivisions are done according to the size of the lot. A section of 50 acres is usually divided into two lots. However, you can also do a section 50 into four lots. If you own a little more land, you can even do a section 50 into eight lots.
It’s important to understand that sections are not always the same. As mentioned before, a section is a division of a road or road type, which is further divided into lots with a specific number of plots. So, a section can be subdivided into a few lots or it can be subdivided into hundreds of lots.
