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

Part 5 - Public authority bylaws

These by-laws may be amended or revoked with the consent of the particular authority and a special resolution of the community, precinct or neighbourhood association.

A management statement may include a separate schedule of by-laws included at the request of a public authority, which may include a local council, a Commonwealth or State instrumentality or a corporation prescribed by the regulations as a public authority. In this way restrictions can be imposed on proprietors within a scheme by an alternative method to a restriction on use created under section 88B Conveyancing Act 1919. A by-law so inserted may only be amended with the approval of the relevant statutory authority.
