DPA in the conveyance

This guidance covers how to use Development Plan Approval in the conveyance.

Development Plan Approval is a free service that checks development plans and deeds and identifies issues before the registration of individual plots.

When you’re describing the subject in the conveyance, you must refer to the plot number and name of the development plan, including any suffix and the date it was approved.

The subjects in the conveyance can be described as:

“All and whole that plot [or plots] of ground [colour reference of plot(s) from development plan] and marked plot number [or number] [number of plot or plots] on the Development Plan (if more than one plan has been submitted over the development insert Plan number and suffix) approved by the keeper for the development registered under [title number] on [dd/mm/yyyy], which subjects hereby disponed form part and portion of Title Number [title number]”

For example:

“All and whole that plot of ground edged red and marked plot number 31 of the Development Plan ANG63461-phase 1 approved by the keeper for the development registered under ANG63461 on 1/12/2014, which subjects hereby disponed form part and portion of Title Number ANG63431”

You don't need to submit a paper deed plan with the related plot disposition for registration, provided the DPA reference or title number and plot number are stated within the disposition, along with the usual link to the disponer's title in the description of the plot - for example, which subjects hereby disponed form part and portion.
