A Developer is an individual or entity who develops or builds a residential or commercial project. A developer may purchase land and obtain entitlements from government agencies with jurisdiction over the project (including obtaining a map in accordance with the Subdivision Map Act) that will allow a developer to build and/or sell its intended project. A developer may either (i) sell the land to another developer or a builder or (ii) build improvements on the land for sale to the public (e.g., residential housing). Depending on the nature of the project, a developer may be required to obtain a Public Report from the Bureau of Real Estate in accordance with the Subdivided Lands Law.
