The Land Transfer Act 2017 (LTA) received Royal Assent on 10 July 2017 and is expected to come into force by November 2018. The new LTA will replace the outdated 1952 Act.

Virtually all private land transactions rest on the framework of the LTA, and the new legislation modernises and updates this framework.

This webinar is an introductory guide, picking up on the key implications for property lawyers, conveyancers, and legal executives arising from the Land Transfer Act 2017. It will help you understand the practical issues, and provide guidance on how to effectively advise clients in this new environment.

Covered in this webinar will be:

  • New terminology
  • Covenants in gross
  • Covenant instruments
  • Manifest injustice
  • Registrar-General of Land powers
  • Compensation
  • Fraud
  • Guaranteed search timeframes
  • Using Landonline under the new Act.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will:

  • Have developed an understanding of the key changes introduced by the new legislation, including the new terminology, instruments and concepts.
  • Understand how the Act will be implemented and how you can prepare for it.
