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.

When used generally, a dealing refers to a transaction affecting land under the Real Property Act 1900 evidenced by a transfer, mortgage, lease etc.

The land dealing information has been prepared to assist clients with preparation, lodgment, examination and registration of dealings affecting the Torrens Title Register.
