Business information

Australian Registry Investments was granted the right to operate the titling and registry operations of New South Wales in April 2017, under a 35-year concession which commenced on 1 July 2017. ARI is a consortium of First State Super, The Infrastructure Fund, the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) Pension Fund, and Utilities Trust of Australia (UTA) Registry Investments Trust, all of whom are represented on the Board of Directors.[2][3]

The NSW Government continues to guarantee title under the Torrens Assurance Fund (TAF).[4]

The Office of the Registrar General regulates NSW LRS as the operator of the NSW land titles registry under a regulator operator model.[5] The Registrar General monitors NSW LRS's operation of the land titles registry in respect of defined service levels, KPIs and the security of the data.[6][7].

NSW LRS was formerly known as New South Wales Land and Property Information (NSW LPI). The LPI was renamed to NSW Land Registry Services in December 2017.


NSW LRS operates the NSW land titles registry on behalf of the State Government and the people of New South Wales. The land titles registry underpins the state’s secure, efficient and guaranteed system of land ownership. NSW LRS create and maintain land titles information and sell land information products and services.

The community, business and government rely on this information for a variety of purposes including land management, conveyancing, property development, investment, local planning, state economic and social development and historical research.
