Historical Background

In 1968, the Uniform Law Commission began a project to unify land financing with land transactions law. It was meant to accomplish for aspects of land law what the Uniform Commercial Code had done for sales of goods and secured transactions. The project expanded to include conveyancing, recordation, liens, and condominiums. In 1975, the entire product was brought before the ULC at its Annual Meeting for approval. At that Annual Meeting, the entire project was split, some of it to be completed then, and some to be continued. In 1975, the subjects of the land contract and land financing were completed as the Uniform Land Transactions Act (ULTA). In 1976, the subjects of conveyancing, recordation, and liens have been completed as the Uniform Simplification of Land Transfers Act (USLTA).*

In the early stages of drafting, ULTA was referred to as the Uniform Real Estate Act. USLTA is sometimes referred to as the Uniform Land Transfers Act.
