    My neighbour (the body corporate of a block of apartments) has agreed to allow me expunge an obsolete easement on my property provided I pay all costs. The have also requested that I update their plan of subdivision and the altered plan of subdivision be registered with the titles office at my cost.

    I am not sure what these costs are. My main concern is stamp duty. If stamp duty is payable on their property it could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Can a plan of subdivision on a neighboring property be altered to remove an easement without stamp duty? The relevant state is Victoria.

    Contact a surveyor - after 7 years of uni/post grad they may be able to provide you with some answers.
