Parcel Split and Combination Process
The process of dividing or combining parcels through our office is for assessment and tax purposes only.
Our office performing these requests does not imply suitability or authorize development of the newly created
parcels. It is important that you contact the appropriate land development or planning or zoning department for
your jurisdiction for questions concerning the appropriate use or development of the parcels involved (see below).
These departments can also advise you on such subjects as the planned develop process, compliance review, variances,
vacation of plat, and special exceptions.
Parcels within platted areas can be divided according to the original configuration. Any further change in that
configuration will need to be recorded on a deed with the Lee County Clerk of Court. In order to split a Metes and
Bounds parcel, a deed containing a legal description must be recorded with the Lee County Clerk of Court.
Parcels can normally be combined providing they are titled
identical and are contiguous.
The application forms are provided as links below. Please be sure to read all the instructions as they contain some
additional requirements that must be met before we can process the request. Each request will need to have a separate form.
If you have any questions, please call (239) 533-6100 or email LandB@leepa.org.
Additional notes: Each jurisdiction has its own rules regarding the process of combining or splitting parcels of land
within its boundaries. Please understand, even though this Office will accept and process a request for a combination/split
of parcels, the request may not conform to the jurisdiction’s land use and development regulations.
We are currently aware that the City of Cape Coral and the City of Fort Myers have an additional approval
process regarding splits and combinations. We have provided links for their forms as a courtesy. Please
contact them directly for more information on their process.
