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

Street addresses

Clause 60(c) Surveying and Spatial Information Regulation 2017 states that a survey plan must indicate, where available, the street address or all of the street addresses of the land concerned in the format required by the Surveyor General’s Directions.

A schedule of street addresses, as allocated by local council, must be provided on the Administration Sheet of each plan where titles will be created for the lots in that plan, in accordance with Section 3.25 of Surveyor-General’s Direction No. 7. If an address or part of an address is not available this should be so indicated in the schedule.
