Before you begin

Before starting your application, make sure you have all the required information and supporting documents.

Title search and copies of survey plans

To ensure there is no impediment to creating new titles for each lot, you should obtain a current title search and copies of relevant plans of survey describing the lots. Check the documents to ensure:

  • the lots have separate surveyed areas
  • the lots have not been re-surveyed or cancelled
  • there is no local authority condition on the plan of survey, local government agreement or covenant requiring 1 or more lots to be held on a single title.

Council conditions on old style plans of survey are only valid if they are dated on or after 9 December 1948.

You should seek the help of a legal professional or cadastral surveyor if you require clarification in relation to the above matters and for advice on whether or not any impediments may be removed.

The current title search will also provide the lot on plan description and other details required in the application form.

Return of paper certificate of title

If a paper certificate of title is currently issued, it will have to be returned for cancellation before your dealing can proceed. You can return your certificate when you lodge your form.
