Who should apply for a right of way or other land title certification
Right of way and other land title applications are usually made by cadastral surveyors and legal professionals because the reasons for applying are legislative and technical in nature.
There are several technical matters under the Resource Management Act and Local Government Act that require council action, but are not dealt with through standard resource consent processing.
- creation of a right of way under section 348 of the Local Government Act 1974
- cancellation of an easement under section 243(e) of the Resource Management Act 1991
- cancellation of amalgamation conditions under section 241(3) of the Resource Management Act 1991
- certificate confirming an allotment is in accordance with the requirements of the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) and under section 226(e)(ii) of the Resource Management Act 1991.
