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!

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!
