Instruments

The tables below set out the e-capable Template and Image Only instruments, and the instruments that are not e-capable and must be lodged manually in paper form (paper lodgement). You can also see whether certifications are required for an e-capable instrument.

Following the commencement of the Land Transfer Act 2017 most instruments became e-capable. Some instruments require a certification from the practitioner submitting them (such as court orders) but do not require an authority and instruction form from a client. 

If you are looking for a particular instrument type, you can select CTRL F (CMD F on a Mac) on your keyboard to generate a Find search box for the page.
