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

Request for urgency (Plans)

A lodging party for a deposited plan, community plan or strata plan may request urgent examination and registration.
A request for urgency of a plan lodged electronically can be lodged as part of a Plan Workspace on the Upload Documents screen in NSW LRS Connect, by selecting the Letter Requesting Urgency Uploaded tick box, after uploading the letter file. This should be at the initial lodgment for registration.

A request for urgency of a plan lodged by hand, or subsequent to an electronic lodgment, may be lodged via email to Plan-Requisitions@nswlrs.com.au or in person at NSW LRS Lodgment Office.

The request should include reference to the plan number. A request for urgency will not be considered prior to lodgment of the plan.

Reason for request

The lodging party must provide reasons why the plan should receive priority. Titling and Plan Services will consider all requests and may grant urgency if the reasons are considered appropriate.

The granting of a request for urgency remains at the discretion of Titling and Plan Services.
