- A section has been added to explain how a determined boundary might be obtained following transfers between neighbours, without an application for a determined boundary being made.
- Section 5 has been amended in response to a complaint that the sixth paragraph in that section was misleading as we may requisition for further information before we consider cancellation of the application.
- Section 4 has been amended to refer to a recent Upper Tribunal decision which stated that the purpose of the determined boundaries procedure is to provide “accurate public records as to the position of the boundary of a registered parcel of land” rather than “resolving boundary disputes between neighbours”.
- Section 3 has been amended to clarify our procedures
