§ 152.04  RESTRICTIONS ON FILING AND RECORDING CONVEYANCES.
   (A)   After the effective date of this section, no conveyance of land to which this chapter is applicable shall be filed or recorded if the land is described in the conveyance by metes and bounds or by reference to an unapproved registered land survey made after 4-21-1961, or to any unapproved plat.
   (B)   This section does not apply to a conveyance of land if the land:
      (1)   Was a separate parcel of record on the date of adoption of this section;
      (2)   Was the subject of a written agreement to convey entered into prior to the date of adoption of this section;
      (3)   Is a single parcel of commercial or industrial zoned land of not less than five acres and having a width of not less than 300 feet and its conveyance does not result in the division of the parcel into two or more lots or parcels, any one of which is less than five acres in area or 300 feet in width; or
      (4)   Is a single parcel of residential or agricultural zoned land of not less than 20 acres and having a width of not less that 500 feet and its conveyance does not result in the division of the parcel into two or more lots or parcels, any one of which is less than 20 acres in area or 500 feet in width.
   (C)   (1)   In any case in which compliance with this section will create an unnecessary hardship and failure to comply would not interfere with the purpose of this chapter in that the proposed lot or parcel described in the conveyance is located in an area that is well established and developed, and no future planning issues need be addressed or could be effectively dealt with given the nature of existing land configuration and public improvements, the Council may, upon written application of the owner thereof or his or her agent, waive the compliance by adoption of a resolution to that effect, and the conveyance with the accompanying resolution may then be filed or recorded in the County Recorder’s office.
      (2)   The waiver may be subject to any reasonable requirements the Council deems necessary to protect the public interest.
