What Is a Lot Line Adjustment?
Sometimes you don't need a subdivision to accomplish your goals. A Lot Line Adjustment is the process that is used to change property lines of existing parcels. The process can be used to do a number of things, such as: combine up to specific number of adjacent parcels into one (1) parcel, alter the boundary between parcels, or reconfigure the shapes of parcels. The City or County will have a limit to the number of lots that can be included in a Lot Line Adjustment (typically four), however in all cases, the resulting map cannot result in more lots than what was originally there. So, you could go from 4 lots to 4 lots or 4 lots to 2 lots, but you couldn't go from 4 lots to 5 lots for example. Lot Line Adjustments are useful when settling boundary line disputes or a tool that can be used in lieu of easements. The final resulting map will create new lot lines. It's important to note that Lot Line Adjustments can only be done with lots that were legally platted or subdivided. But that's a story for another day.
