A Severance Sketch, also called a Draft Reference Plan, is a deliverable certain Municipalities will request as a component of a consent application. Consent is required in order to create a new parcel of land by dividing an existing parcel (Severance) or alter one or more boundaries of an existing parcel (lot addition or lot line adjustment). Consent is also required for new proposed interest in a parcel or portion of land such as the granting of a right-of-way. The Severance Sketch itself accompanies the consent application and is used to visually depict the proposed alterations to the land.
It is important to consult your local municipality or city as they will have specific policies and requirements for land severance.
The cost for the Severance Sketch will not include the cost of the Reference Plan deposited in the land registry office. This is a different type of survey and will be typically required and is completed once the Severance receives preliminary approval. An additional proposal will be provided after the review of the conditions of consent set by the Municipality.
