Select the Simple mode option.
  1. Review all Transferor names. Transferor names are added automatically but can be edited using the Change due to pending dealing toggle.
    • These details will either be the names of the registered owners or will reflect any prior change of ownership instrument that has already been prepared in the same dealing.
    • When the person icon to the right of the transferor is filled blue, it means there are additional details about the transferor, such as an alias, suffix or the birthdate of a minor. Select the icon to view those details. Select the icon again to hide the details.

You can use the:

  • Change due to pending dealing toggle under the transferors to edit, add or delete the names or aliases displayed. For example, use when an instrument in a prior dealing is updating who the transferors will be. If needed, use the 6-dot grid icon to the left of a transferor to drag and drop the transferor above or below another.
  • Revert/Update button to re-set the registered owners’ name to reflect the Register and any prior instruments in the dealing. For example, if the name has been edited using ‘Change due to pending dealing’ in Legacy Landonline you can use Revert/Update to revert back to what is recorded on the Register. Also, if a prior instrument has been added to your dealing which changes the registered owner, using Revert/Update will pull through the updated names.
