Plans and dealings

Land titles are based on a plan of survey, or a plan compiled from a survey, which defines the boundaries of a parcel of land at the date upon which it was registered.

When new land parcels are created (e.g. subdivision) or when all or part of an existing parcel is to be used for a specific purpose (e.g. easement or lease) a plan must be prepared, lodged and registered with your state registry. In defining new parcel boundaries, the plan creates the legal identity of the land.

Plan documents you can order with InfoTrack:
  • Deposited PlanA plan is an image that defines the legal boundaries of the land. They record subdivisions, easements, resumption or restrictions on the land.
  • Strata Plan: The strata plan is a subdivision of a parcel of Real Property land into separate lots and common property.
  • 88B: An instrument attached to a plan which upon registration creates easements, restrictions on the use of land and positive covenants.
  • Development Contract: Disclosure document that indicates the details of a future development
  • Management Statement: Sets out by-laws to assist the efficient running of the scheme
  • Crown plans: Are survey drawings illustrating the land boundaries and physical features of specific parcels of land and may include references to early tenures and ownership of the land. The plans date back to 1792 and earlier.

You can order NSW deposited and strata plans using your credit card here.
