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

Transfer affecting share folios

A transfer by one tenant in common is registered on that tenant's folio only. A transfer affecting the whole of the land is registered on all of the folios.

Consideration must be given to consolidation of share titles if registration of the transfer will result in all the titles being held in the same ownership.

A separate Request Form 11R is required for the issue of separate certificates of title for each share. 

Staff processing information

If all of the certificates of title for the shares accompany the transfer, the case must be referred to SM99 for registration and preparation of a consolidated title (for NOS purposes).

If all of the certificates of title do not accompany the transfer, a 28 Day Notice Of Intended Registration form 10-0180 must be sent to the lodging party advising that if all the certificates of title are produced a consolidated title will be issued. If the titles are not produced within 28 days or the lodging party declines the offer, the dealing will be registered without consolidation.
