Current Issues in Plat and Subdivision Law

January 30

Learn how to navigate through current subdivision procedures and avoid common problems along the way.

California's Subdivision Map Act (SMA) is one of the most litigated areas of development in California. Many issues under the SMA are avoidable if the developer, its attorney(s), consultants and others involved on their behalf make sure to understand the SMA's role in the development process and its' pitfalls throughout. From the initial interactions with public agencies and its officials through the final approval(s) for a development, there are many issues with identifying the right map for the development, processing of the map, and finally approval which need to be understood in order to avoid a mistake which could endanger the development project. This topic will assist people to identify many of these issues, provide guidance on the requirements of each of these issues, and understand the penalties and other detrimental impacts to those involved or the development which could have been avoided.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to identify and avoid issues and problems common to processing of a subdivision map for a development project.

- You will be able to discuss the issues in the approval of a subdivision map from beginning to end of the development process.

- You will be able to explain recent development in case law and legislative changes.

- You will be able to review the basics of subdivision maps and determine the type of map necessary for a development.
