How to Apply for Subdivisions of Property

Apply for a subdivision at the Office of the Surveyor in the Department of  Buildings Office (DOB), 1100 4th Street SW, Room E 320 (Waterfront Metro).

Step Two

Follow the processing instructions given by the Surveyor. For the HPO review, email the plat to [email protected]. HPO will either clear the application or advise you if it needs to be referred to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB).

Step Three

Obtain the HPRB and Mayor's Agent review if needed. After HPO completes the historic preservation review by signing the subdivision plat, finish the remaining steps to get the subdivision.
