Notice of Change (NoC)

A Notice of Change of Ownership (NoC) needs to be completed and sent to the relevant territorial authority (TAs) if a dealing includes any instrument which provides for a change of ownership on the Record of Title.


  • A NoC can only be created in New Landonline if:
    • the specific instrument type has been added to New Landonline
    • the TA for the affected Record of Title has signed up for the automated NoC service. 
  • The NoC enables TAs to maintain the accuracy of their records for the affected property, such as rating information.
    • TAs may share information from the NoC with entities that provide services to them (such as council controlled organisations supplying water services).
  • If a Record of Title is hidden under s 41 Land Transfer Act 2017 or s 232 Family Violence Act 2018 at the time you prepare your dealing, we cannot provide NoC functionality. 
    • We recommend contacting the relevant TA to discuss how the records will be updated while preserving the safety of the owners of the title.
  • Any party to a dealing may create and edit the Notice of Change, but conveyancing professionals will typically follow the following pattern:
    • the purchaser for the dealing will start the Notice of Change form
    • the vendor for the dealing will update the form and select ‘Ready to Send’. (This means that as soon as the associated instrument is registered, the NoC form is automatically sent to the relevant TA).  
  • Whenever a NoC is created for an instrument, an email will be sent to all parties advising that this has happened.
