The following information relates to rule 6.5 and the different types of boundaries that may be used to define the extent of a parcel.
To ensure that there are no disputes as to the extent of ownership of interests, it is essential that the cadastre and land title documents record the boundaries that confine or divide two contiguous estates, in an unambiguous manner.
The Rules provide for the following types, or forms, of boundaries:
- Right-line boundaries
- Arc boundaries
- Stratum boundaries
- Water boundaries
- Irregular boundaries
- Permanent structure boundaries
Form of boundary where non-primary boundaries coincide or are in common
The form of boundary (refer to rule 6.5) must be identical where a new non-primary boundary is to coincide with an underlying parcel boundary, or share a common boundary with an adjacent non-primary parcel.
