Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) has issued a reminder that in December 2019 the Registrar-General of Land published a new version of the accretion and erosion guideline LINZG20783.
The new guideline took effect on 13 December 2019. It explains how a registered landowner can apply to have their record of title altered to record a boundary change resulting from accretion or erosion.
LINZ says the changes to the guideline are "not material". It says key updates include:
- structural and stylistic edits;
- changes to terms and definitions;
- additional guidance on how an affected person can object to an alteration, also reflected in the sample notice of intention to alter the register in Schedule 1;
- inclusion of a recommended consent form in Schedule 3.
