Splitting the UDI Parent Property


Use this procedure when ownership of a property has been split and you need to assign ownership to the new portions.

The wizard cycles through each property record involved in the split starting with the original property record, followed by the other property records resulting from the split.

Caution Caution Icon Do not cancel the wizard once you have begun because later you may not be able to access the data you entered up to the point of cancellation. For example, if new property records are created and you cancel out of the wizard before completing all of the wizard screens for the new property records, you will not be able to access the new property records later.

  16. Click Next.
  17. Repeat Steps 9-16 as required to access the Split Wizard - Improvement/Land window for the next property record that resulted from the split.
