Don’t leave title corrections to the last minute

Remember to check that title details are correct before creating an e-dealing and preparing the instruments.

Complete searching well in advance of settlement. If you think a title contains an error, don’t leave it to the last minute to contact LINZ.

Use the tools at your disposal to request a correction to the Register. The quickest way to have a title correction investigated is to use the following Title Related Requests from Workspace:

  • Titles - Correction
  • Titles - Correction Prevents Registration

Use the ‘Titles – Correction Prevents Registration’ request type if the error is going to prevent settlement.

Benefits of creating Title Related Requests from your Workspace are threefold:

  • Your Workspace Tree will indicate when the request has been completed
  • It will be dealt with by LINZ quicker than if you telephone
  • You can choose the correct type of request
