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

Transfer Altering Tenancy (Joint Tenants to Tenants in Common in Equal Shares)

This page aims to help you complete a Transfer Altering Tenancy (Joint Tenants to Tenants in Common in Equal Shares) dealing form. This form is to be used only for a transfer which has the sole purpose of altering the tenancy of all the registered proprietors from joint tenants to tenants in common in equal shares.

NOTE: If the sole purpose is to sever a joint tenancy between fewer than all the registered proprietors, then this form cannot be used. Instead, see the Transfer Severing Joint Tenancy dealing form.

A Transfer Altering Tenancy dealing form cannot be used where the registered proprietors are recorded as joint tenants in a fiduciary capacity i.e. where the registered proprietor has acquired by means of a Transmission Application or an Application to Record New Registered Proprietor.

NOTE: The registered proprietors must be represented in the workspace for this dealing form.
