Changes to Unit Titling Process


Unit Titling has long been a bugbear of members, especially the requirement to complete each phase of process one after the other.

From 1 July 2023, reforms to the Unit Title application process now make it possible to lodge a Unit Title application without the following ‘required material’:

  • (a) the most recent certificate of occupancy and use
    • (i) for each unit in the parcel; and
    • (ii) for any structure within the boundaries of the common property;
  • (b) if a work approval for the development is required under the Public Unleased Land Act 2013, section 19 (Approval to carry out work on public unleased land)—a copy of the approval.

The ‘required material’ may now be lodged with the Unit Title application and if not lodged must be provided by the applicant as further information to accompany the Unit Title application prior to approval of the Unit Title being granted. These changes should help streamline the unit titling process.

More information about the reforms, including other changes made as part of the package of reforms are explained on the Managing Buildings Better website.
