Cartography: How do I prepare my own Combination/Split application?
  1. Understand the process; don’t just fill out the application. Many applications are returned to applicants due to improperly executed applications and a lack of understanding of the process.
  2. Know the difference between filing and successfully approving an application and a conveyance that actually transfers real property.
  3. Be certain the legal descriptions that describe all new parcels and remainder parcels accurately do so. Many applications are returned to applicants because of legal descriptions that do not accurately describe a parcel of land. In order to properly assess and tax a parcel of land, the Assessor must be able to define the boundary of the parcel, determining acreage and location.
  4. Signatures on your Combination/Split Request form.
    • Planning and Zoning, City or County: The County and each municipality have their own rules and regulations regarding whether or not a land division will be creating legal parcels. The purpose of the filing a Combination/Split Request form is to determine, if in the eyes of the county or a particular city, the land division you are planning constitutes a legal parcel suitable for development—either residential or commercial. It is permissible to divide a parcel of land without filing a Combination/Split Request form but any resultant parcels may or may not qualify for development entitlements. The Assessor’s office will not process a Combination/Split Request form that has not been reviewed and signed with approval by the appropriate zoning and planning agency.
    • Treasurer’s Office: To verify property taxes have been paid.
    • Owner’s Signature: In order for the Assessor’s office to approve a Combination/Split Request form, the owner/s of a parcel must sign the form. If the parcel is owned by a corporation or trust, an officer of either must sign the form and the title and/or authorization status must be clearly noted. In the case of 2 or more parcels being combined and/or split where the each parcel has a different owner, the owner of EVERY parcel involved must sign the form.
    • Call the Assessor’s office with questions before recording your application.
Please be aware that many Combination/Split Request applications are rejected because of missing signatures or signatures that are unclear as to whether the signatory actually owns the parcel or is empowered to sign for the entity that does. If you have any questions please call the Assessor’s office for clarification before recording your application. This will ensure your application is processed as soon as the Assessor’s office schedule will allow.
