Final Plat and
Final Plats for Subdivisions or Condominium Plats can be provided at a reasonable
cost by a Registered Arizona Land Surveyor. We are very experienced in designing
and creating Final Plats for Residential Subdivisions, Apartments & Condominiums.
Find out a little more about the Plat Maps below.
Condominium Plats must be signed by a registered Land Surveyor. Condominium Plats can be created for Multi-Family residential areas or even a Commercial Buisness Center.
Condominium Plat maps are used to create multiple parcels or lots
inside of buildings. The buildings will be dimensioned to the property line
and the lots or Units will be dimensioned inside of the buildings. The ownership
area of each Unit is designated in the Condominum Plat but, there is also a
Condominium Declaration which is recorded and describes the condominium units,
usage and ownership in detail.
Although it can be designated otherwise, typically the boundaries of the interior
of Condominium, will be the unfinished interior of the exterior walls, ceilings
and floors of the Unit. The exterior patios (and or balconies) and designated
parking spaces are what is called a Limited Common Element. A Limited Common
Element is an area of the entire complex which is used by less than all of
the people in the complex. The Limited Common Elements are designated as such
in order to assign the benifit of the use of an area, but limit the users
ability to alter that space.
Subdivision Plat maps require a Registered Land Surveyor's signature. Residential and Commercial Subdivision Plat maps are used to create multiple parcels or lots
from a larger property. Hundreds of lots can be created by recording a single
plat map. Unless the property is in a remote area, the creation of a large
amount of lots can only be done with complete improvements. Typically all of
the proposed improvements will need to be designed and approved before the
Final Plat can be recorded.
The process of a large subdivision of lots begins with a Preliminary Plat. This depicts the proposed design of the water, sewer and streets. It is submitted to the governing municipality for review along with preliminary grading plans. During the review process the civil engineer can make any adjustments requested by the municipality prior to creating final design drawings for all the utilities and streets.
When everything has been approved, the land surveyor can create the Final Plat, on which he/she will place their professional seal and signature. This map will only show the information required to create the individual lots. The map will contain the information about the developer, the specific location of the property and notes regarding any zoning or other restrictions. It will contain a dedication statement signed by the developer, whereby the streets, utilities and easement ownership will be transferred to the proper entities. There will be signatures by the municipalities signifying approval of the Final Plat.
The Final Plats are recorded at the county recorder's office in the county where the property being subdivided exists, and will be given an identifying number designating where that particular map can be found. The Final Plat will be stamped with the recording number.
