Cadastral reinstatement is the process whereby a cadastral surveyor re-establishes and describes the position of boundaries created by earlier actions. Previous boundary
reinstatement cases are examined and the principles on which the courts made their decisions are identified. These principles are synthesised into a simple set of guidelines that may be applied by cadastral surveyors to practical cadastral reinstatement problems. A number of common circumstances that confront practising cadastral surveyors are used to show how these principles may be used to supplement the hierarchy approach to reinstatement.
