New Horizons for Torrens

Current Reforms, Emerging Issues

29 - 31 August 2018 | The University of Auckland

WELCOME

The Conference theme is: New Horizons for Torrens – Current Reforms, Emerging Issues.

The conference will provide value for the New Zealand practitioner seeking a better understanding of the new Land Transfer Act 2017, as well as New Zealand and overseas academics and policy makers interested or engaged in similar reforms.

It is timely for such a conference as the new Land Transfer Act 2017 comes into force later in 2018 and introduces wide-ranging reforms that will have a significant impact on land law in New Zealand. Its enactment may well also influence ongoing land law reform in other jurisdictions including Australia and the United Kingdom.

A significant part of the new legislation concerns the further advancement of automation of land transactions, and a departure from the traditional understanding of the ‘immediate indefeasibility’ principle that underpins the Torrens system. In addition, the Conference also covers a broad range of current legal issues and developments affecting land that are common to other comparable jurisdictions.

The Conference will include presentations by leading New Zealand and international experts on land law, land registration systems and automation. Confirmed speakers include Judges, academics, law reform commissioners, and practitioners from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland and the Netherlands. The New Zealand Registrar-General of Land will give an update on automation under Landonline. The Conference will include a panel discussion on automation and new opportunities offered by advances in information technology.
