Some Certificates of Title are limited by the fact that the parcel boundaries have not been examined by NSW Land Registry Services (LRS). To remove this limitation a plan of survey, which satisfactorily defines the boundaries of the land needs to be lodged and registered at LRS. This is often referred to as a “plan of delimitation” as once this plan of survey is registered the limitation on the Title is removed.

Hint: If you are planning a development or building it is wise to have your plan of delimitation lodged and registered as early as possible. This has several benefits: it creates certainty as to the location of the boundaries both for the designer of the project and the builder; it avoids expensive delays at the end of the project when costs are at their highest; it eliminates doubt for any prospective purchaser allowing for a better return on investment.
