In a continuation of the transition to E-conveyancing from 1 July 2019 all remaining paper CTs not held by an ADI will be cancelled. Version 5 of the Conveyancing Rules replace version 4 from this date.
Version 5 of the rules provide that all mainstream dealings including transfers, mortgages, discharges of mortgage, caveats, withdrawals of caveat and transmission applications, or combinations thereof, must be lodged electronically when signed on or after 1 July 2019, except where a waiver applies.
Waivers apply to certain transactions that are not able to be lodged electronically.
The following waivers which operate from 1 July 2019 in conjunction with Conveyancing Rules version 5 have now been published:
- Conveyancing Rules Waiver CR 2/2019 – Mainstream dealing exceptions
- Conveyancing Rules Waiver CR 3/2019 – Land Tax
If eligible for a waiver, a Conveyancing Rules Exception form will need to be complete at the point of lodgement. This form is available in the sale and purchase matter plans.
An Alert has been added to the by Lawyers Conveyancing Sale and Purchase matter plans regarding the 1 July 2019 mandate.
