C1 - Selling a Subdivided Section and Remaining in Your Current Home

If you are happy living in your current home and neighbourhood but your section is getting a bit much for you or you'd like some additional income, this may be an option to consider.

Pros

Cons

What do I need in order to take this option?

Could this option limit my future choices?

Yes, once you have sold the section, unless a new dwelling requires a notified resource consent, you will have little say in what happens on that section. As part of the process of exploring the potential for subdividing your property, you should consider what your council's planning rules would allow on the new section and how that might impact your home and how you use your own remaining section.
