From May 2018 transfers recording a transferee – that is, the executor – as trustee can be lodged electronically. To do this only details of the trust will be required – that is, as executor pursuant to grant of probate.
For consistency in paper the Titles Registry introduced the Trust Details form, on which the basis of the trustee transfer can be noted. Transmission applications that are supported by a grant from a foreign jurisdiction that is eligible for re-seal in Queensland under the British Probates Act 1898 (a Queensland recognised grant) that have not been resealed in Queensland are now made on a form 5.
While a form 1 Transfer is available through PEXA and eLodgement, transmission application forms 5 and 5A can only be lodged through eLodgement. See Electronic lodgement of title transactions (eLodgement) for details of what forms can be lodged and how to use eLodgement.
Transitional provisions for forms 5 and 5A are in place until 30 September.
Forms 5 and 5A have been updated to the latest version. The new Trust Details form has been added to the matter plan. Also our Probate and Letters of Administration commentaries have been updated to reflect these changes.
