Guidance for making an accretion application to correct a title to reflect the current position of the water boundary, and for the consideration of applications.

Accretion occurs where a property is bounded by water, has a moveable boundary, and further land is added to the property due to gradual and imperceptible changes in the position of the water boundary. When this occurs the property owner is entitled to have the title corrected to reflect the current position of the water boundary, by application to the Registrar-General of Land.

This guideline was amended on 12 September 2013. The Foreshore and Seabed Act was repealed on 1 April 2011, all references to this Act have been removed.
