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

Rejection and re-instatement of plans

A notice of intended rejection is sent to the Lodging Party of a plan to which no response to a requisition has been received within the stipulated period (usually two months from the date of the original requisition). If no response to this notice is received within a further 28 days the plan (and any associated instruments or dealings) will be rejected and the lodgment fees forfeited.

A request for an extension of time due to extenuating circumstances can be made to the Deputy Registrar (Plans), Customer Services, NSW LRS Sydney office by phone, letter, email or in person.

A request to re-instate a plan following its rejection must be made in writing to the Deputy Registrar (Plans), Customer Services.
