These Rules concern various procedures relative to adjudication and registration of titles under the Land Titles Act. Matters here regulated include the registration of judgments, decrees and order of a court, the ascertainment of the value of property to be adjudicated, appeal with the High Court of decisions against decisions of the Recorder of Titles and the Land Registration Court, the demarcation of boundaries of property to be adjudicated and proceedings respecting land for which no title is established. The Recorder may give notice in the Gazette that the remaining lands not dealt with are Government lands. An application may be made to the Land Registration Court by any authorized Government officer for a certificate of ownership in favour of the Government in respect of those lands and such certificate of ownership under rule 32 shall be an indefeasible title.
