What is an eNOS?

eNOS is an electronic Notice of Sale form which must be submitted to the NSW Land Registry Services when a property changes ownership. This can only be used for Torrens title properties. 

The eNOS service lets you prepare and lodge the electronic version of the Notice of Sale avoiding the hassle of filling out the paper version. It is used by the NSW Land Registry Services to notify Councils, Water Authorities and other relevant rating authorities of changes in ownership of property in NSW.

If you are ordering an eNOS from the InfoTrack system as well as a Section 118 Transfer Certificate then the eNOS ID will pre-populate info the transfer form, saving you valuable time.

Purpose of the Notice of Sale information

The submitted information will be connected to the appropriate Torrens Title dealing affecting the ownership details of land or a strata or community title unit when that dealing is lodged for registration at NSW Land Registry Services. Submission of this information within 30 days of a notifiable event and its connection to the relevant dealing or instrument will satisfy the following legislative provisions:

  • Local Government Act, 1993: section 604
  • Valuation of Land Act, 1916: section 71
  • Local Land Services Regulation, 2014: clause 24
  • Conveyancing Act, 1919: section 184E
  • Real Property Act, 1900

Purpose for which the supply of Notice of Sale information may not be used

  • Transfers of Crown holdings under the Crown Lands Act 1989 (eg, permissive occupancies, road closures) or of any rateable lands which are not registered at NSWLRS.
  • Occupation (as distinct from ownership) of land rateable by Local Land Services.
  • To change ownership of a Water Access Licence (WAL) holder.

In the above cases, the new owner’s details must be advised directly to the prescribed authorities on the prescribed form.
