If you have a Required Dealing in paper that was signed before 22 March 2021 you can still lodge it in paper. Under Rule 8.8.1 of the Conveyancing Rules, any Required dealing, not including Mainstream Dealings, that have been signed before 22 March 2021 can be lodged in paper any time. This includes any dealings lodged together with a prior dealing which was signed after 22 March 2021. For example, if a Variation of Lease was signed on 18 March 2021 and it was lodged as part of the same lodgment case with a Caveat that was dated 25 March 2021, both dealings can be lodged in paper.
