A client stopped by this morning to discuss splitting a tract of land we recently surveyed for him. It will not meet the width requirements for health department approval if divided. He wasn't happy about that at all and said he wouldn't have bought the tract if he had known. It seems that the realtor told him he should be able to split it at least three ways. The realtor based that on the minimum lot size requirement, but didn't have a clue about any other requirements like width, usable soils, etc. The client paid me and was headed to see the realtor. I hope they get a wake up call from this.
