Customer Question

We have a property that is in two lots but on one title. How do we go about separating these lots to gain two titles?

This is likely to depend on the original conditions of the subdivision which created the two lots. Your first check should be with the local council to see if there are records of the subdivision and any conditions. If there are no conditions, and each of the lots has road access, it may be as simple as asking Landonline to issue two titles. However it is more likely that there are some conditions, and so you should also check the title and the deposited plan showing the two lots.
