Final Subdivision Plat
- How do I record a plat to subdivide my property?
After the Final Subdivision Plan is approved, if applicable, the Final Subdivision Plat can be reviewed and approved for recordation.
A subdivision plat review is performed by the Department of Planning and Department of Development & Permits. A review is required when any property is divided into two or more parcels.
If only existing property lines are vacated or relocated then the appropriate instrument is a Resubdivision Plat.
