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

Easements affecting Limited Torrens Title

Where an easement is to be created affecting a Limited Torrens title, the site of the easement must be defined by survey unless an exemption is obtained from the NSW LRS plan and Title Advisor.

Any compilation must be prepared in accordance with the guidelines for compiled plans.

Consideration should be given to expanding the plan of survey to include a definition of the external boundaries of the land in the title to facilitate 'Delimitation' action.
