Regulation 26 of the Land Transfer Regulations 2002 allows the Registrar-General of Land (RGL) to change or correct names in his or her records in certain circumstances.
This document provides guidance on applying to change or correct the name of an individual, a company, an incorporated society, or other corporate body in the RGL's records.
This guideline supersedes the previous guideline LINZG20704: Guideline for making application to change or correct names on the Register, and has been redrafted to:
align with the current electronic lodgement processes, and
provide clear guidance on supporting evidence requirements.
