Cross Lease and Unit Title Surveys
Cross Lease and Unit Title surveys are required in order to create titles for higher density living. These are essential to give shared ownership to a piece of land that is related to a building or parts of buildings, for example an apartment in a group of apartments; or a commercial unit within a complex.
Cross Lease and Unit Title surveys provide for common areas such as driveways, pools, BBQ complexes, etc.
What is involved?
The process is the same as subdivision. Resource Consent is required, including appropriate surveys, and complying with council requirements (generally the same as land use and building consent requirements). Download an estimated timeline here.
