Investigation of Title

Investigation of Title.

8.An application for investigation of title shall be in Form No. 1. Such application, if made in respect of land which has not been surveyed, must be accompanied by an application to the Surveyor-General for authority to a surveyor to enter upon and survey the land for the purpose of such investigation.
9.If land in respect of which such application is made extends into more than one district, the Registrar to whom the application is forwarded shall communicate with the Chief Judge for the purpose of obtaining his decision as to the district in which such application shall be recorded. All subsequent records relating to such land shall be kept in the district in which the original application is recorded.
10.The Court may, on the application of the Surveyor-General, with the approval of the Minister (Form No. 2), proceed with the investigation of the title to any Native land upon any map or plan which the Surveyor-General shall tender for that purpose, and which the Court shall deem sufficient.
11.Except as in the next-preceding rule is provided, the Court shall not proceed with the investigation of the title to any Native land until it has before it an approved plan of the land the subject of the application.
12.The order of the Court on investigation of title upon an approved plan shall be in Form No. 3. An interim order, on a plan accepted under Rule 10, shall be in Form No. 4.
