Land & Property Information errors due to privatisation process

PSA media release:

The issuing of incorrect certificates by the Land and Property Information Service regarding the impact of infrastructure projects on more than 200 properties was due to the looming privatisation of the Titling and Registry wing of LPI said the Public Service Association (PSA).

The union said a contributing factor to the errors was staff cutbacks with many experts normally involved in these duties instead working on the preparatory process for the privatisation of the Registry.

The PSA said these errors would never come to light in a privatised organisation.

“At the moment, while LPI is still in public hands, the NSW Government remains accountable for these human errors. There is a Government guarantee”, said PSA General Secretary, Stewart Little.

“Once the service is privatised, there will be no regulation and no accountability, only a profit motive.”

“What private enterprise with a focus on its profits is going to raise its hand and advise the community of its errors?”

“There will be no follow up, only cover up once the service is sold off”.

“These errors do not bode well for the privatised organisation nor the community,” said Stewart Little.
