Land Division Act

Requires a land owner to apply to the local unit of government before a land division or split can be made. There is a form to be filled out along with a scaled drawing of the division, including public utilities and easements noted. Land divisions allowed are based on the amount of available property in a formula of number of divisions to the remainder of land and access based on local zoning.

With the passing of house Bill No. 4055, a property tax payment certification is required before any parcel of land is divided to ensure that all taxes are paid.
