A lot line adjustment is a process by which it is possible to sell property to an adjoining owner, or to reconfigure parcels under one ownership, without recording a parcel map. State law defines the Lot Line Adjustment as follows: A lot line adjustment between two or more existing parcels, where the land taken from one parcel is added to an adjacent parcel, and where a greater number of parcels than originally existed is not thereby created, provided the lot line adjustment is approved by the local agency.
