A Boundary Line Adjustment plan moves a property line between two lots, allowing for the exchange of land between adjoining lots.  It can also combine multiple lots into a single lot. A Boundary Line Adjustment cannot create an additional building lot and cannot result in a lot that does not comply with the Zoning Ordinance. 

Once an application is accepted the typical review time is 7 business days.   Staff will prepare comments regarding changes needed to the plat before approval; these comments are sent to the owner and the applicant.   The corrected plat is resubmitted, another review is conducted, typically within 7 days.  Once the plats are able to be approved, they are signed by the Subdivision Agent and the applicant is called to pick up the plats.  The applicant must record the plats within 6 months in the Fauquier County Land Records.
