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

Land dealings

A dealing is an instrument which is registrable or capable of being made registrable under the Real Property Act 1900, in respect of which a recording in the Torrens Title Register is required or permitted to be made. Some examples of dealings are a transfer, mortgage, lease, etc.
The land dealing guidelines have been prepared to assist customers with the preparation, lodgment and registration of dealings affecting the Torrens Title Register.
