LRS Assisting customers during COVID-19

April 29, 2020

Executing and witnessing documents

Restrictions imposed in response to COVID-19 have made it difficult to prepare, sign and witness paper land instruments. Regulatory changes have been announced to assist our customers during this challenging time. The Registrar General has published a Guidance Note for land dealings which can be accessed here.

We understand that the Registrar General will shortly be releasing a Guidance Note for plan and associated plan documents. To assist with the lodgement of plans and associated documents during this period, our interactive Administration Sheet, Section 88B instrument and plan lodgment checklist will be updated to support electronic signing. Further details will follow shortly.


For further information, please contact our Contact Centre team on (02) 8776 3575 or Contact Us online.
