To provide guidance to examiners and conveyancers on de-linking of deeds at prep.

In order to:

this decision must be contained in a Registrar's circular.

this decision must be contained in a Registrar's circular.

Exception to the Rule
De-linking of deeds due to an examiners note can be accommodated if the batch has been re-linked by the examiner who examined the batch and the unnecessary endorsements have been crossed out.

4. Effective Date
This circular will be effective immediately (18 October 2018)
