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

Record caveat on the Certificate of Title

A caveat is not usually recorded on the certificate of title. A request in writing to record the caveat on the certificate of title may accompany the caveat, or a Request form 11R (PDF 150 KB) to have a caveat recorded on the certificate of title may be lodged at any time after registration of the caveat. The certificate of title must be produced with the request.
