Lot Line Adjustments

Lot Line Adjustments

A lot line adjustment is the process that is used to change property lines of existing parcels. The process can be used to do a number of things, such as: combine up to four adjacent parcels into one parcel, alter the boundary between up to four parcels, or reconfigure the shapes of up to four parcels. In every instance, the lot line adjustment process will yield the same number of parcels that you began with or fewer. The lot line adjustment process is not used to create additional parcels.

In most jurisdictions the lot line adjustment process, also known as a Boundary Line Adjustment, involves submittal of an application to the local jurisdiction along with a fee.  Information that is typically required for a lot line adjustment includes a site plan showing the location of existing lot lines, proposed lot lines, existing buildings, and existing utility services, Depending the what is being adjusted, and which jurisdiction is reviewing the application, legal descriptions for the areas to be transferred from one parcel to another will be required along with an accompanying exhibit map.  “Resultant” parcel descriptions are also used to describe the adjusted parcels post lot line adjustment.  Many Jurisdictions require the filing of a Certificate of Compliance as a part of the process.
