When do I need a Consent?

Under what conditions is a consent required?

  • To divide land (or sever it) for the purpose of sale,
  • To register a mortgage or discharge a mortgage over part of a parcel of land,
  • To register a lease over part of a parcel of land when the term of the lease is 21 years or more (inclusive to renewal options),
  • To register easements for rights-of-way, and
  • To adjust boundaries of existing land parcels to enlarge or decrease the size of property.

Where a number of severances are being proposed and to ensure proper and orderly development, it may be more appropriate to submit a Plan of Subdivision.
