As a landowner, you have certain rights and obligations regarding your property and access to it.

Who should apply for a right of way or other land title certification

Right of way and other land title applications are usually made by cadastral surveyors and legal professionals because the reasons for applying are legislative and technical in nature.

There are several technical matters under the Resource Management Act 1991 and Local Government Act 1974 that require council action, but are not dealt with through standard resource consent processing.

For example:

  • creation of a right of way under section 348 of the Local Government Act 1974
  • cancellation of an easement under section 243(e) of the Resource Management Act 1991
  • cancellation of amalgamation conditions under section 241(3) of the Resource Management Act 1991

How to apply online for a right of way or other land title certification

As well as the completed application, we may need additional information so we can make legislative assessments. For example, we may need a Record of Title or the proposed plans.

Apply online for any of the following:

Right of Way (s348 LGA)

Cancel Easement (s243(e) RMA)

Cancellation of amalgamation conditions (241(3) RMA

226 Certificate

Other non-RMA planning matters.
