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

Revocation of a guardianship


If the appointor no longer requires the services of the appointed guardian to make decisions on his or her behalf, and has the legal capacity to do so, he or she can revoke the appointment by completing the form prescribed in Schedule 2 Guardianship Regulation 2010:

Revocation of appointment of enduring guardian

"I, [name, address and occupation] revoke the appointment of [name of the enduring guardian or enduring guardians] as my enduring guardian.

I understand that this revocation will not be effective unless the enduring guardian is or has been given written notice of the revocation.


Date: ...".

And if a person signs this instrument on another persons's behalf
[insert the name and address of the person who signs this document] 

Certificate of Witness

"I, [insert name address and occupation] certify that [insert name of person revoking appointment] appeared to understand the effect of this instrument and in my presence:

(a) executed the instrument voluntarily, or

(b) voluntarily instructed [insert name of person signing on behalf of person revoking appointment] to sign the instrument on his or her behalf and that person executed the instrument in my presence. 



See s6H Guardianship Act 1987; cl. 6 Guardianship Regulation 2010.  For definitions.
