  • Abolition of paper Title Deeds for land in Queensland
    The way in which the Titles Registry deals with paper certificates of title (paper CTs) is changing.

    On 26th March 2019, a Bill was passed in Parliament amending the Land Title Act 1994. The amendments mean that, as of 1st October 2019, paper CTs will no longer have any legal effect. As is currently the case, the electronic title held in the Titles Registry will continue to be the point of truth for ownership and other interests in land in Queensland. Only about 11% of titles in Queensland still have a paper CT in existence.

    This change means that as of 1st October 2019, a paper CT will become an item of historic or sentimental value only and will no longer need to be deposited with the Titles Registry when a transaction is lodged over the title. As of that date, there will be no requirement for disposing of any existing paper CT, they will not need to be destroyed or brought in to the Titles Registry, nor will they need to be dispensed with for a transaction to proceed.

    However - please note - that until 1st October 2019, the current legislative provisions governing paper CTs remain in force. This means that transactions where there is a paper CT will still need that paper CT to be deposited or a process to dispense with the paper CT undertaken. The only exceptions to this will be those exceptions currently provided for by the Land Title Act.

    In late April (until 1st October), the Titles Registry will be introducing a changed process for dealing with Form 19 applications for a paper CT. After lodgement, these applications will be dealt with centrally instead of the current process for dealing with them at regional DNRME offices. This means that no matter where you lodge a request for a new paper CT, it will be delivered by registered post. The only exception will be where the registered owner has requested it be held for collection from a designated lodger delivery box in the Brisbane (Albert Street) office of the Titles Registry.

    From 1st October 2019, there will no longer be the option to lodge a Form 19 - Application for certificate of title.

    Similarly, a Form 17 – Request to Dispense (with production of a CT) will become redundant as of 1st October 2019.

  • Changes to requirements for deposit of trust documents with Mortgages and Leases
    Please note that there has been a practice change in relation to the requirements when a mortgage or lease is lodged with the Titles Office which will record a mortgagee or lessee as a trustee on title.

    There is no longer a requirement to provide details of the trust instrument when lodging a mortgage to a trustee mortgagee or when lodging a lease to a trustee lessee (e.g. by depositing a copy of the trust deed or referring to a previous dealing where the trust deed was deposited).

    Amendments have been made to sections [2-0100] and [7-2050] of the Land Title Practice Manual.
