Hi guys, I think many people are unsure about how to change property ownership. Whether you need to add someone's name to the title, remove a name or even update your name following marriage or divorce, you'll typically need to complete a transfer of title form from the relevant state government website. Here's how to complete the NSW property transfer form: 1. Get a copy of the form In addition to Transfer Form 01T, you’ll also need to complete a Notice of Sale or Transfer of Land (form 10-0520). These forms are also available: Online from the LPI website From LPI's customer Service centre From the Client Services Counter or the cashiers at the LPI Sydney office 2. Use black or blue ink If handwriting, use block letters. Don’t use white-out to correct any errors; instead, rule through any material you want to delete and initial the left-hand margin of the form. 3. Provide the Torrens Title In part (A), enter the number for the Torrens Title for the land being transferred. 4. Provide Lodged By details In part (B), provide the details of the person or firm lodging the form. You’ll need to enter your name, address, phone number and customer account number (if you have one). 5. Provide the details of the transferor In part (C), insert the full name of the person or corporation who is the transferor of the property. 6. Insert the consideration figure In part (D), enter the price or other consideration amount for which the land was transferred. 7. Complete Section (E) If the land is being transferred to the transferee an estate in fee simple, leave the form as is. If you are transferring an estate other than fee simple, rule through ‘fee simple’ and insert the required estate in uppercase text. 8. Specify the share transferred If transferring less than the whole of your share, specify the amount being transferred. For example, if you own a half share and are transferring one half of that, insert ‘as regards a one-half share of the transferor’s one-half share’. 9. Writ details In part (G), if the transfer will be made subject to a writ, enter the registration number of the writ. If no encumbrance applies, leave this section blank. 10. Insert transferee details Provide the full name (or ACN, ABN or ARBN for a corporation) to whom a share of the property is being transferred. 11. Enter tenancy details Next, if there is more than one transferee, you must enter the tenancy in which they will hold the land. For example, ‘joint tenants’, ‘tenants in common’ (including the share each tenant wishes to hold) or ‘tenants in common in equal shares’. 12. Execution This form must be completed by the transferor and transferee or on their behalf – select the relevant option from those provided. Any witness must not be a party to the transaction, must be an adult and must know the person executing. In addition: If the form is executed by an individual on their own behalf, their signature must be witnessed If the form is executed by an attorney, the power of attorney must be registered and the attorney’s signature included If the form is executed by a receiver or delegate, a statement must be included to explain this and the receiver or delegate’s signature must be witnessed If the form is executed under authority, the nature of the authority must be disclosed If the form is executed by a solicitor or licensed conveyance on behalf of the transferee, the signatory’s full name and capacity must be included in block letters If the form is executed by a corporation, the form of execution should refer to the power of authority relied on by the signatories 13. Complete Section (K) This section only needs to be completed if the notice of sale data has been forwarded through the eNOS facility. 14. Lodge the form with LPI In addition to Transfer Form 01T you will need to provide: A completed Notice of Sale or Transfer of Land (NOS) form; The original Certificate of Title for the relevant property (if not already produced); The lodgement fee; and If using the form for severance of joint tenancy, a statutory declaration of the names and postal addresses of the other joint tenants and any mortgagees Hope this helps!
