sometimes necessary or desirable to merge
two or more existing parcels of land into a single
parcel. This usually does not involve
many zoning issues because the new parcel is going
to have the same setback issues as the separate
parcels had to begin with.
jurisdictions have different requirements for this
procedure. Some only require that a surveyor
prepare a new legal description that describes the
new parcel in a “metes and bounds” format and some
require that you go through the whole Lot Line
Adjustment or Parcel Map Waiver procedure (see Lot
Line Adjustments or Parcel Map Waivers).
