eConveyancing is a critical part of the NSW Government’s commitment to leading digital innovation. Transitioning to the eConveyancing system involves shifting away from paper certificates of title. As a result, the Office of the Registrar General has published a discussion paper seeking feedback on a range of issues relevant to certificates of title which remain to be addressed. The discussion paper:
- outlines the current status of certificates of title in NSW
- reviews the legislative environment relating to certificates of title in NSW and in comparable jurisdictions
- discusses proposals for replacing paper certificates of title with an electronic alternative
- raises questions for discussion.
Certificates of title: the next evolution
The Paper, entitled ‘Certificates of title: the next evolution’ was released on 7 December 2018.
Submissions will close on 28 February 2019.
