On 11 October 2021, the Real Property Amendment (Certificates of Title) Act 2021 commenced, which abolished the Certificates of Title (CTs) and the control of the right to deal (CoRD) framework. All existing CTs have been cancelled and CTs will no longer be issued. Existing CTs will not need to be produced, and CoRD holder consent will not be required, for a dealing or plan to be registered. All existing Guidelines subject to this change are currently being reviewed and will be updated to reflect these changes. For further information regarding the abolition of CTs, please see https://www.registrargeneral.nsw.gov.au/property-and-conveyancing/eConveyancing/abolition-of-certificates-of-title

Development and neighbourhood lots

The land may be dedicated upon registration of a community, precinct or neighbourhood plan of subdivision. This plan must meet all the requirements of a subdivision.

Part of a lot

Part of a lot may be dedicated as a road or reserve in a community, precinct or neighbourhood plan of subdivision. The plan should show the new lots (being the residue after the road action) numbered appropriately:

  • Any land to be dedicated as road should be identified as road or road widening.
  • Any lots to be dedicated as a public or drainage reserve should be indicated as such in the plan drawing area.
  • The administration sheet must contain an appropriate dedication statement.

Whole of a lot

If it is intended to dedicate the whole of a lot as road or reserve a community, precinct or neighbourhood plan of subdivision can be lodged redefining the relevant lot and allocating it the next available number for the scheme.

  • Any lots to be dedicated as a public or drainage reserve should be indicated as such in the plan drawing area.
  • The administration sheet must contain an appropriate dedication statement.
  • See the Registrar General's Guidelines  for Deposited plans which deals with New roads created in a deposited plan.
