I have 60-acres and I would like to sell 30-acres of my land. Do I need to plat the property?
Possibly, is the answer. Generally, in the unincorporated portions of the County, divisions of property that are 20 acres or greater are exempt from the platting requirements. However, within the Manhattan Urban Area such divisions are only exempt if the property will be used strictly for agricultural purposes or as a cemetery. It is always a good idea to check with the County Planning & Development Department to determine any platting and/or zoning requirements prior to the sale of any land, particularly since this is information that will not be included in a title search or abstract of title.
