Article 4: New requirements for the identification and claiming of silvers of land

LRS has announced new requirements when preparing deposited plans over Old System or Limited Title land to minimise the creation of small sliver parcels of land.  A simplified process will be implemented to allow an adjoining owner in possession to formally claim the land. The evidence required to accompany the dealing will include a statutory declaration detailing the adjoining owner’s period of possession and possessory acts, similar to a statutory declaration that would accompany a Primary or a Possessory Application. A new Registrar General’s Guideline will be published outlining these requirements in more detail.
