How do I get started?

Prior to using SPEAR there are a number of steps prospective users need to complete. If you have any questions about getting started with SPEAR, please contact us.


Read the SPEAR ELN Participation Rules

On 21 January 2019 the Registrar of Titles determined Version 2 of the SPEAR Electronic Lodgment Network Participation Rules under section 23 of the Electronic Conveyancing National Law (Victoria). This version was published on 24 January 2019 and takes effect on 25 February 2019.


In determining Version 2 of the SPEAR Electronic Lodgment Network Participation Rules, the Registrar adopted, where applicable, the model participation rules developed and approved by the Australian Registrars' National Electronic Conveyancing Council (ARNECC).


Lodging parties must read the SPEAR Electronic Lodgment Network (ELN) Participation Rules before proceeding.
