In my area, it is very difficult and expensive to get this type of severance.
I once looked at 3 houses that were being sold as a single property. They were built all at the same time as rentals.
When I went to the registry office I was astonished to find that the property had already been severed and the houses could be legally sold separately.
This would have doubled their value.
So check the registry office or court house. You never know what astonishing things you will find out.
I do this as a matter of course before I make an offer on a property. It only costs $5.
