It is not possible to prepare a satisfactory register of properties and to guarantee title to those properties unless the properties have been positively identified i.e. unless it is possible to identify the boundaries of the properties with certainty. It is for this reason that in most modern systems of Registration of Title the Registrar requires that each property shall be unambiguously defined by representing its boundaries on a registry index map before recording the ownership of the property in the official register.
