Subdivision

Unlock the Value in Your Backyard

If you’re the owner of a plot of land, and considering subdivision? We can help!
Whether you’re based in the country or in the city, and you want to chop your current section into two or complete a bigger development – your local Landmark Homes team can help you navigate complicated Council processes, build a world-class new home on your section, and make a profitable pathway to a successful subdivision.

Why subdivide?

With land in New Zealand’s cities increasingly scarce, and property prices skyrocketing, there’s real money in subdivisions – and if you’re sitting on a piece of land it just makes sense to subdivide it and build out the back.

Of course, this may be easier said than done, and many are put off by the long and complex process of dealing with Councils, contractors and financial advisors.

But although subdividing land can seem like a huge undertaking, it doesn’t have to be when you loop in someone else to handle it. That’s where we come in!

Sell your old home and build new for free!

One of the biggest benefits for homeowners is that subdivision and building can be a cash-neutral process. So, if you’re one of the lucky ones with a bit of land, you could have the golden ticket to building your dream home, for almost nothing – or even profiting in the process!

The majority of our clients can sell half of their site and their original home for the amount it costs to subdivide and build a beautiful, custom-designed brand-new home on the remaining section – and even put money in the bank afterwards for kids’ schooling, a dream holiday, or a rainy day.

The financially-sound option

When you complete a Subdivision with Landmark Homes, we don’t take a cut of your profits. So, if your Subdivision adds $350K to the value of your property, every dollar is yours to keep. You’re only paying us for the Subdivision process and the project management and the build of your new home.

We’ll also advise you on the most profitable way to complete your subdivision, and help you avoid having to re-do any part of the process, by taking care of it for you.

Your one-stop-shop for Subdivision, and Design and Build

Normally, homeowners would have to sort out the complex and arduous business of Subdivision themselves before approaching a building company.

Instead, we will do it all for you – taking care of the entire operation from seeing what’s feasible on your site, to sorting out the council consents, to designing your new home, coordinating the groundwork and infrastructure, to carrying out the physical build.

Of course, no two sites are the same, and some will be trickier than others. But our local teams have extensive knowledge about their individual Council’s rules and requirements.

Not only do we have years of experience in subdivision – but we also have 40+ years of experience in building beautiful new homes that suit the New Zealand lifestyle. Every home is crafted to the highest of standards, using only top-quality materials and unique, architecturally-sound plans.

When you subdivide and build with us, you’ll have peace of mind that your new home will stand the test of time.

We take care of the entire subdivision process for you, from start to finish, and then build your dream home on the subdivided section. 

1. Site Feasibility Assessment

First things first, see if Subdivision is possible on your section. We’ll do a thorough assessment and give you a proposal for what could be developed on your section – with an estimation of the costs involved.

2. Planning your Subdivision

Next, we will complete a thorough Site Survey to establish what planning/engineering issues that may arise on your section – including a Geotech report. Then we’ll plan your Subdivision, and what we can build on there. Including driveways and site access.

3. Designing your New Home/s

After meeting to discuss what you want from your new home – we will design a beautiful new home that meets Council requirements and ticks all of your ‘must have’ boxes too. There is sometimes an art to achieving both!

4. Completing the Application + Subdivision Process

We will complete your Resource Consent Application, and liaise with Council and engineers your behalf, responding promptly to any issues that come up.

5. Building Your New Home/s

Finally, we will build your dream home! We’re known for our price transparency, unparalleled quality, and efficiency on-site and off. Click here to read some Client Stories and see what people say about us – or explore our House Plans to inspire your new build.

Get Started Now

Depending on the location of your property, permission to subdivide will depend on the requirements of the Unitary Plan (if you’re in Auckland) or your local Council’s District plan and the zoning of your section.
