Titles Registry Forms and your witnessing obligations

Important changes to the Land Title Act 1994 and the Land Act 1994 came into effect on 30 September 2019 resulting in changes to your witnessing obligations when assisting a signatory to these documents.

In this module we outline the best practice witnessing procedures, including recordkeeping.

You can access more information about the changes and witnessing steps in Technical Bulletin 02/19 - Changes to Witnessing Requirements for Titles Registry Forms.

This information is in addition to information already provided in chapter 4.11 of the Justices of the Peace or Commissioners for Declarations handbooks. As a result of the changes several technical bulletins have been superseded and replaced.
