I'm looking to see what the steps/process is for acquiring a piece of land from a neighbor to build my natural building on. I know that things vary from state to state, county to county, but I'm sure there's a general formula to this kind of thing which I just don't have the knowledge of. My project will be on the books, so please no advice for just bypassing government regs. Specifically, I will be buying a piece of land from somebody's existing plot, so how do I turn it into its own plot/parcel? I figure I'll need to register it with the local gov't as well as have a surveyor look it all over. Then probably have a realtor sort out the contract between me and the seller. Any insight into all this would be much appreciated!
And you need to check with the zoning authority (city, county, etc) to see what hoops your needed to be jumped through to subdivide. There are often rules to the size and shape of parcels.

Wow, that's incredible. I imagine it would be very complicated and expensive in an affluent area, maybe Connecticut or NY State. But I find it hard to believe it would be anywhere near that for a small subdivision here in rural Pennsylvania... I will contact my county and see what else I can learn. Location, Location seems to really hold true!
