Splits/Plats/Combination Fees and Information
Fees: $0.50 for each new parcel being created. For plats, we do not charge a fee for parcels that are being created for common area or garages that are included with the unit or are part of the limited common area.
All documents presented to our office indicating a “split” must have the proper approval stamp(s) on the document before we can process.
All city splits must have approval from that city's planning department.
All splits in a township must have planning approval from the Butler County Planning Department. Splits in the townships of: West Chester, Liberty, Fairfield, St. Clair, Morgan and Wayne are required to have both the Butler County Planning approval stamp and the township approval stamp on the document before we can complete processing.
The plat process in our office can take up to a week to complete. We complete plats in the order which they are received.
Before a combination can be completed by our office, the name(s) on each mother parcel must be identical. Any variation in the name(s) will result in the combination being rejected. Documentation will be required to transfer the parcel(s) into the correct name(s) for the combination to be completed.
All combinations located within a city require approval from that particular city planning department. West Chester Township, Liberty Township, Fairfield Township, St. Clair Township, Morgan Township and Wayne Township require planning approval from each of their planning departments.
