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

Withdrawal of Priority Notice (electronic)


A Withdrawal of Priority Notice instrument may be lodged by the PN subscriber (or their solicitor or licenced conveyancer) to remove a PN from the land title.

An electronic Withdrawal of Priority Notice can only be lodged where it affects all of the land titles listed in the PN.

If less than all of the listed land titles are affected, then the PN should be withdrawn and a new PN lodged for the remaining titles.

NOTE: Priority of the protected dealings will be lost on withdrawal and any other dealings which were held up by the PN will proceed to registration.

For information to assist with completing a Withdrawal of Priority Notice in an ELNO, see ELNO guidance notes for Withdrawal of Priority Notice.

Staff Processing Information

When a PN has been withdrawn before expiry the priority of the listed dealings cease to have effect and any dealings waiting in the queue may proceed if in order.
