(2)Nothing in subregulation (1) prevents the holder from surrendering to the registrar a transfer marked under that subregulation for cancellation within the period so marked if that form of transfer has not been executed by a transferee.
(3)Notwithstanding that a transfer marked under subregulation (1) has been executed by a transferee, that transfer and that marking may be cancelled by the registrar with the consent of both the transferor and the transferee and the registrar may thereupon give effect to any other dealing to which the marked transfer related.

(3)A person shall not have any claim against the Corporation or the Government in respect of any transmission effected under this regulation, but nothing in this regulation relieves the person to whom the relevant stock is transmitted from any liability to account for or deal with that stock in accordance with law.
(4)A statutory declaration produced to and accepted by a registrar under these regulations is a valid discharge to him and to the Corporation against the claims of any other person whomsoever in relation to a transmission the registration of which was thereby effected.
[Regulation 27 amended: Gazette 10 Nov 1998 p. 6164.]
(1)The executor, administrator or trustee of the estate of a deceased holder (not being one of several joint holders) shall be the only person recognized by the Corporation as having any title to or interest in stock registered in the name of the deceased holder.

(4)A person is not required to reseal in the State any probate of a will or letters of administration of an estate in order that a transmission may be registered under these regulations if, in respect of stock to which the estate relates, probate of a will or letters of administration of the estate is or are produced to the registrar, together with such further information as the registrar may require.
(5)Unless the registrar otherwise requires, in the case of a transmission consequent on death when neither the probate of the will nor the letters of administration are produced to that registrar, then —
(a)in the case of transmission to a survivor or the survivors of a joint owner; or
(b)in a case in which the face value of the stock to be transmitted does not exceed $20 000,
a certificate of death of the person who has died, accompanied by a statutory declaration or other evidence satisfactory to that registrar identifying the person named in that certificate of death with the person who is shown as the registered holder, setting out the reasons why probate or letters of administration are not produced and declaring that the face value of the stock transmitted will be dealt with according to law, may be produced to and accepted by that registrar instead of the probate of the will or the letters of administration.
[Regulation 28 amended: Gazette 10 Nov 1998 p. 6164.]
(1)When stock is to be transferred by transmission in consequence of the death or bankruptcy or insolvency of the registered holder or for any other lawful reason, otherwise than by a transfer, the person to whom the stock is to be transmitted, or his attorney or his duly authorised agent, may, in a form substantially complying with the form approved by the registrar, copies of which may be obtained from the registrar, apply to the registrar to be registered as the holder.
(2)An application for transmission shall, if the registrar so requires, be supported by a statutory declaration or other evidence satisfactory to the registrar verifying the contents of that application.
(3)The registrar may require the signature of a person who claims a transmission by virtue of his appointment as executor, administrator or trustee to be verified to the satisfaction of the registrar.
(4)The probate of the will or letters of administration of the relevant estate or an office copy of the relevant adjudication or order of sequestration or vesting order, as the case requires, or any other document that authorises transmission under this regulation, shall be produced to the registrar, if he so requires.

(6)If the registrar is satisfied that stock is registered in the name of a person whose property is required by law to be placed in the hands of the Public Trustee, or of an officer holding a corresponding position in any other State or any Territory or the Commonwealth or of any other officer charged with the duty of administering estates of deceased persons or missing persons or persons under legal disability (other than bankruptcy or insolvency), the registrar may authorise transmission to the name of the Public Trustee, the officer holding a corresponding position or that other officer, but before doing so the registrar may require a sufficient indemnity from the Public Trustee, the officer holding a corresponding position or that other officer.

(4)During any period for which the stock ledger is deemed to be closed, the Corporation shall cause the amount represented by the stock respectively standing to the credit of the several registered holders thereof to be ascertained and the balances to be struck and carried forward in the register, and the persons who on the day the register is so closed are recorded as holders shall be entitled to receive the interest next payable on that stock.
(5)Interest may be paid in a manner approved by the registrar and not otherwise provided for in these regulations, or, on an application being made by the holder in a manner approved by the registrar, to some person therein nominated by the holder.

(7)If, under the conditions of the relevant issue, the Corporation has provided that the first payment of interest on any stock shall be made to the person in whose name the stock was registered originally, then that person shall for the purpose of the first payment of interest be deemed to be the holder under this regulation.

(1)The receipt of —
(a)a person who is the registered holder or one of the registered holders; or

shall be a sufficient discharge of the Corporation for any interest payable in respect of any stock, or any document relating thereto, and the Corporation shall not be bound to see to the application of the money paid on that receipt.
(2)If stock is held in joint names and one or more of the registered holders dies or die, or becomes or become bankrupt, insolvent or otherwise legally incapable, the receipt of any one of the other joint holders or survivors, or of his attorney or an agent duly authorised, shall be a sufficient discharge of the Corporation for any interest payable in respect of the stock or any document relating thereto, notwithstanding that a transmission has not been registered under Part IV.
(3)When stock is redeemed, subject to any requirement of the registrar made in relation to a discharge to be given by joint holders, the receipt of any one of the persons in whose names the stock is held shall be a sufficient discharge of the Corporation.
