Pre-validation failure

Landonline runs business rules to check your dealing before you submit it (pre-validation). Some pre-validation failures will prevent you from submitting the dealing but others will not.

On this page

Following are some common instances when pre-validation will fail but the instrument and dealing may still be registered.

New Title dealing with Easement instrument/s following the OCTN (Order for New Titles)

Reason for failure

The easement instrument will be over the new Title references that will have a status in Landonline of either pre-allocated or pending.

The system recognises these titles as not yet issued and for that reason pre-validation will fail for these titles (i.e. status is not Live or Part Cancelled yet).

What you should do

  • Don't revert back to the head Title for an easement instrument (EI) that follows an OCTN. If you do and submit the dealing, it will be rejected or requisitioned to change it back to the new Title references.
  • Continue to prepare your instrument against the new Title references; it's OK for it to fail. In fact, it would be a concern if it didn’t fail for the titles not being Live or Part Cancelled.
  • Make sure it hasn't failed pre-validation for any other valid reason.
  • If you're unsure about the reason why something has failed, ring 0800 Customer Support (0800 ONLINE).
  • Continue to submit your dealing for registration.

Mortgage (M) following a Transfer in exercise of Power of Sale (TPS)

Reason for failure

The TPS instrument is an Image Only instrument, so the names that pre-populate in the mortgage will need to be edited to update the mortgage with the new registered owner/s names.

The new registered owner/s names won’t be entered into the system until LINZ staff process the Power of Sale instrument.

The mortgage will fail pre-validation because the registered owners don’t match the registered owners currently on the Title.

What you should do

  • Continue to prepare your instrument.
  • If you're unsure about the reason why something has failed, ring 0800 Customer Support (0800 ONLINE).
  • Continue to submit your dealing for registration.
