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

Compiled consolidation plans

A plan consolidating two or more parcels into one new parcel may be compiled provided:

  • the boundaries have been previously surveyed
  • the lots mathematically close to acceptable standards
  • the base plans and adjoining plans are in agreement as to survey, and
  • surrounding plans confirm the base plans are reliable.

Consolidation of Limited Title parcels requires all the titles to be limited, the base plans must show full bearings and distances on all boundaries and the base plans must be in agreement.

NOTE: If your plan complies with the above requirements, then prior approval from the Plan and Title Advisor is not required and reference '20M (Comp)' should be shown next to the Surveyor's Reference on the Administration Sheets and deposited plan.

NOTE: The acceptable misclose for a fully compiled plan is 1:8000 (level country) and 1:4000 (steep country).
