The Governor in Executive Council has approved regulations requiring the electronic lodgement of eligible land title documents.
The regulations have been gazetted today, Friday 24 November, and go before the Joint Standing Committee on Delegated Legislation on 27 November before being tabled in both houses of Parliament.
This means that the move foreshadowed in CIB 297, 11 July 2017, is now in place.
From 1 December 2017, all eligible mortgages, discharges of mortgages and refinances must be lodged electronically.
From 1 May 2018 all eligible, stand-alone transfers, caveats and withdrawal of caveats and any lodgement case consisting of eligible discharges, transfers, mortgages, caveats and withdrawal of caveats must be lodged electronically.
