Property Line Adjustment
A Property Line Adjustment is the moving of a common boundary line between two or more abutting properties.
Property Line Adjustments have the ability to increase the size of one lot and decrease the size of the other. However, the County limits the amount of land that one of the lots can loose.
Property Line adjustments do not always have to change the sizes of the lots involved. Changing of property lines where neither parcel looses land is called an "Equal Area Land Exchange."
Property Line Adjustment Applications require an agreement between both property owners to change the common boundary between their lots, a survey illustrating the current boundaries, and a survey illustrating the new boundaries.
Property Line Adjustments and their required information are usually processed through a Type I application process.
Costs for Property Line Adjustments can be found on the Fee Information Page.
