The Act provides for powers of land surveyors to carry out land survey of boundaries of estates and for procedures of such survey, the review of surveys and the inclusion of surveys in survey plans. Notice of land survey shall be given 7 days prior to survey and shall be in the form as set out in the First Schedule. A warrant of land survey shall be issued in a prescribed form by a judge if survey is carried out to establish boundaries of adjoining lands in order to resolve a land dispute (sect. 6). The resulting demarcation plan prepared by the Chief Surveyor shall be recorded and published in the Official Gazette (sect. 7). A plan which is not contested within 3 months after publication shall be binding upon the parties (sect. 7). A person aggrieved by a plan made under section 7 may within 3 months after receipt of the plan apply to court for a review of the plan (sect. 14). The Judge may order review of surveys. When boundaries as shown in a plan are altered by a decision of a Judge, the Judge shall order a new plan. (sect. 7, comma 3). (21 sections and two Schedules)
