Boundary/lot line adjustment
A boundary line adjustment (BLA), also known as a lot line adjustment, accommodates a transfer of land between adjacent separate lots. BLAs do not create additional lots or building sites.
They allow legal transfer of ownership and minor relocation of property boundaries or merging lots for any recorded or unrecorded, subdivided parcel. Changes in lot configurations may also be allowed provided the building site remains within the original parent parcel. This process allows for corrections to created gaps or overlaps of property caused by erroneous occupation or legal descriptions. See also Affidavit of Correction and Subdivisions. Administered by the Permitting Department. See legal authority Chapter 19A.28 (minor adjustments)* of the King County Code. Contact us at customer service 206-296-6600 for questions .
