You passed your soil test! Congratulations. What are some other things to keep in mind? Each property is a unique set of circumstances but in the legal world your buying a piece of paper. It's therefore a good idea to utilize a local lawyer to handel the the legal issues and a local surveyor to verify the property boundaries. Why? In general the past local oversite of land subdivision has been minimal. Two discrepancies I have had experience with include, the tax map and the boundary maps conflicting or the previous subdivision not being properly recorded with the county when it was created. Rules and regulations are continuously changing, if an oversite was made in the past this is the time to clarify the situation

What if I'm interested in buying just a portion of a larger parcel? You will need to do soil testing for a primary and reserve septic system within the area of each lot you plan to parcel off. The soil test or tests locations are illustrated on the subdivision map prepared by a licensed suveyor. A subdivision map consists of a boundary map of the existing parcel with the additional boundaries created by the new parcel or parcels. In most Towns, there are zoning requirements that impact the size, orientation and access to the lots. Subdivisions maps need to be approved by the local planning boards and then recorded within a certain timeframe with the county of jurisdiction. Depending on the immediate road of access, driveway permits are often required by the State, County or Town. These permits often require a certain amount of site distance prior to approval.
