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

How do I process a transaction electronically when the vendor has changed their name but the land title still shows the former name?

Where the name of a party stated on an incoming electronic dealing differs from the full name recorded on the land title, the discrepancy may be justified without the need to lodge a Change of Name- see Justification for a name discrepancy.
