Land title practice manual

Witnessing provisions during coronavirus (COVID-19)

With the current COVID-19 situation, the Registrar of Titles has provided some guidance on alternative witnessing provisions that can be used to assist in witnessing of documents, where document lodgement cannot be delayed. For example, where the transferor or mortgagor is in COVID-19 related self-quarantine or self-isolation.

The land title practice manual details the required practice and procedures for industry practitioners when preparing and lodging Titles Registry forms. The manual includes a detailed guide to completion for each form and examples of completed forms.
