Name of Form: Application for registration of an amendment of a community titles scheme – amendment of a scheme plan effecting subdivision

Type of Form: Application to be lodged at Landgate

When it’s used: When applying for registration of an amendment of a scheme plan effecting subdivision in a community titles scheme and associated schedule of unit entitlements (if applicable) where the amendment of scheme plan effects one of the following types of subdivision.

Where the amendment results in the amendment of the scheme that it belongs to, then a separate, simultaneous Application for registration of an amendment of a community titles scheme – amendment of a scheme plan effecting subdivision will be required for each scheme being amended.

Types of amendments:

Example:

Example:
