This interim guideline has been published by the Registrar-General of Land for use by employees of LINZ who exercise registration functions under the Land Transfer Act 1952 and practitioners who lodge unit title dealings with LINZ.

It contains guidelines for best practice compliance with the Unit Titles Act 2010 and Unit Titles Regulations 2011 to ensure that plans and instruments received by LINZ:

  • are dealt with correctly,
  • contain all the necessary prerequisite instruments, plans, authorisations, consents, certificates, and any other matter specified by the 2010 Act, and
  • that all computer registers issued are in accordance with the 2010 Act.

This guideline references the Rules for Cadastral Survey 2010 (CSR 2010). The Cadastral Survey Rules 2021 (CSR 2021) came into effect on 30 August 2021. During the six-month transition period (30 August 2021 to 25 February 2022) Cadastral Survey Datasets (CSDs) may be certified and lodged in terms of the CSR 2010 or the CSR 2021.
