A Subdivision is the division of contiguous (adjoining) parcel(s) of improved or unimproved land shown on the latest equalized assessment roll for the purpose of sale, lease, or financing. Parcels separated by easements or public and railroad rights-of-way are contiguous. Condominium and community apartment projects (new construction and conversions), and the conversion of five or more existing dwelling units to a stock cooperative are Subdivisions.

A Subdivider is a person, firm, corporation, partnership or association who subdivides real property for themselves or others.
