The combination of two or more adjoining plots of real estate into a single plot. For example, a farmer may own 10 acres. If he buys the 25 acres next to him, he may combine the two plots so that they are from then on considered a single unit. Assemblage can increase the value of the real estate such that the new plot is worth more than the sum of its parts. This can have property tax implications.
