Throughout the consultation process, stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback on proposals. NSW LRS provides a feedback report detailing how industry input influenced final decisions.

Uniform National Mortgage

National consultation has begun on a new National Mortgage Form (NMF), which is expected to be introduced in 2015. The Form will standardise and streamline the process of preparing real property mortgages across all States and Territories.

Since late 2012, a working group of representatives of land registries, financial institutions and Property Exchange Australia Pty Ltd (PEXA), chaired by the Australian Bankers’ Association, has been developing a national mortgage form.

The objective of the work is to standardise the land registry requirements for mortgage forms across jurisdictions and make the process for preparing a mortgage form consistent regardless of whether lodgment will be made in paper or electronically through PEXA.

The working group has reached the stage where they are seeking wide ranging feedback on the draft National Mortgage Form (PDF Smart form) that has been developed.

The following materials are published to assist your review and comment:
