Boundary adjustment

A boundary adjustment plan provides a simple method of altering boundaries between development lots and association property. The adjustment must be, in the opinion of the Registrar General, of a minor nature. The plan when lodged must be accompanied by a report from a registered land surveyor which contains details of the reason for the adjustment. In considering the boundary adjustment the Registrar General may take into account:

  • The location, size and topography of the development.
  • Whether it will necessitate a re-allocation of the unit entitlement.
  • All information that the surveyors report contains.

Note  It is strongly recommended that prior approval to the lodgment of the plan be sought from LPI. This request for approval should include the surveyors report. If the request for approval is granted the plan should be lodged as a Boundary Adjustment Plan and must contain a detail plan, an association property plan and administration sheets.

The detail plan

The plan must be prepared on Plan form 2 (PDF 37 KB) with the development lot and the association property fully defined including areas. The adjusted boundaries must be defined by survey. The other boundaries of the development lot and association property may be compiled. The sheet must include a note in Approved form 15 (PDF 52 KB)

The Association Property plan

The plan must be prepared on Plan form 2 (PDF 37 KB) and provide full dimensions for all boundaries of lot 1. The information should be compiled from the information on the detail plan. The sheet must include a note in Approved form 16 (PDF 49 KB)

Easements

Consideration must be given to easements on or near the adjusted boundary. It may be necessary to release and re create these easements in a new position.

Accessways

A replacement accessway plan may be required if its position is affected by the boundary adjustment. This will require the lodgment of an Amendment of Management Statement form 21CSM (PDF 544 KB) and a replacement sheet of the accessway plan lodged as a Replacement Sheet for Community Title Plan.

Upon registration of a boundary adjustment plan the land automatically vests in the owner(s) of the development lot and the association according to the adjusted boundaries.

Administration sheets

The Administration sheets must include certificates:
