BOU-01 Amendments of Boundaries, Area or Position
Version 1 - 06/02/2017
Part IX of the Transfer of Land Act 1893 (s.s 170 to 179 of the TLA) sets out the manner whereby a proprietor of land may apply to have their certificate of title amended or a relevant graphic for the land amended or replaced where the land bona fide occupied differs from that described in the certificate of title or on a relevant graphic for the land.
The application is required to be in one of the appropriate forms shown in the Twenty fourth Schedule to the TLA. It is recommended that a Blank instrument form be used.
The application is examined by the Commissioner and the intention to grant the application advertised in the manner directed. Persons having an interest in the land affected are notified and any person having an objection to the application may lodge a caveat forbidding the granting of the application.
