Section 118, Land Title Act

  • From time to time, when a right of way plan is being surveyed it is discovered that the true location of the present natural boundary of a property being crossed does not agree with the location of that boundary shown on the plan upon which title is based. If the difference in the location of the present natural boundary is attributable to either accretion or an incorrectly defined natural boundary on the plan upon which title is based, a land surveyor may proceed with an application under section 118 of the Land Title Act .
  • These applications to the Surveyor General are similar to applications made under section 94(1) of the Land Title Act . Should the application be successful, then the right of way plan may include the accreted land or may extend to the true natural boundary, whichever is the case.
  • Please submit applications through the Electronic Filing System (EFS). The EFS User's Guide outlines the process to submit an application.
