A lot line adjustment is the process that is used to change property lines of existing parcels.
A lot line revision or adjustment is the reconfiguration of the boundaries between two or more existing adjacent parcels where the land taken from one parcel is added to an adjacent parcel and where a greater number of parcels than originally existed is not created.
WHAT IS A BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT?
A boundary line adjustment (also known as a lot line adjustment) is a reconfiguration of property lines between two or more separate legal parcels. The purpose of the Boundary Line Adjustment is to provide a procedure to move a lot line shared between two existing parcels.
A BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT CAN BE USED TO:
- Adjust non-conforming lots to make them
buildable by increasing the size or width;
- Rectify defects in legal descriptions;
- Achieve increased setbacks from property lines or environmentally
- Correct situations where a structure is located across a lot line;
- Allow any other boundary line modification
that is consistent with state subdivision law.
