Discussion Paper - Certificates of title: the next evolution

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.
