The most common types of subdivision, we’ll talk to you about the option that best suits your property and goals:

Freehold title

Subdivision creates one or more additional, separate sections from an existing parcel of land.
New certificates of titles are created for each parcel, which means the property is owned
outright by the individual.

Unit title

Creating a unit title involves individual titles to units, apartments, or semi-detached dwellings as ownership of a defined part of the building and share ownership of common areas such as driveways, lobbies etc.  A requirement of this option is that a body corporate must be formed to manage the common facilities, insurance and maintenance costs.


A cross-lease is where a number of people own an undivided ownership share of a piece of land, and homes can be built on the land are leased from the other landowners.
