ABOUT The Bill

On 27 November 2012, Hon Andrew Cripps MP, Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, introduced the Electronic Conveyancing National Law (Queensland) Bill 2012. 

The Bill was referred to the Agriculture, Resources and Environment Committee in accordance with Standing Order 131. The committee will now examine the policies the Bill seeks to give effect to, the Bill’s lawfulness, and the application of fundamental legislative principles, as set out in section 4 of the Legislative Standards Act 1992. 

By resolution of the Committee of the Legislative Assembly, the Committee is required to report to the Parliament by Tuesday, 12 March 2013.

The Bill provides a legislative framework in Queensland for the implementation and operation of a national electronic conveyancing system by – 

  • Applying as law in Queensland the Electronic Conveyancing National Law as in force from time to time in new South Wales; and
  • Amending the Land Title Act 1994 and the Land Act 1994 to ensure provisions of those Acts interact appropriately with the Electronic Conveyancing National law and provide a complete legislative framework to ensure that national e-conveyancing can be implemented in Queensland.
