Fee simple subdivisions

What is a Fee simple subdivision?

This is sometimes referred to as subdivision into ‘free-hold’ titles, with these fee simple titles being by far the most common type of subdivision. It is the simplest and least restrictive form of land ownership.

Why do a fee simple subdivision?

The advantages of fee simple tenure is that you have total control (often in partnership with the bank) and own the whole of the land and are able to make any additions or alterations to your property (subject of course to Council bylaws and consent requirements) without having to get the consent of neighbouring property owners, unlike a cross-lease title and Unit Title.

We offer a range of property information packages, for you to ascertain what can be done with a particular property. These range from a free desk-top assessment, through to an in-depth property report including estimated costs to develop the property.
