The Land Transfer Act 2017 provides a process for anyone who is concerned for their safety to apply to have information withheld from the Register, so that it is not publically available. Identifying information may also be withheld under the Domestic Violence Act 1995.
This guideline sets out information requirements and processes for applications under both the Domestic Violence Act 1995 and the Land Transfer Act 2017 regimes.
Anyone who is concerned for their safety may apply to have information withheld from the Register if the information will disclose their whereabouts and prejudice their safety.
‘Withholding period’ is used in this guideline to describe any period during which information is withheld from the register under either regime.
