Fees and lodgement

You can lodge your forms and documents by post or in person. Read about payments and lodgement for details. For industry professionals, electronic conveyancing and eLodgement are easy, fast and secure lodgement alternatives.

Checklist of what to include

Make sure your application includes all the required information and documents:

  • Form 14 - Request to record a notice of appointment of an administrator under a guardianship and administration order
  • tribunal order (original or certified copy)
  • Form 20 - Enlarged panel (if applicable)
  • payment by cheque (if applicable).

Fees and payment

To calculate fees, use the fee calculator.

If lodging in person, you can pay by cash, cheque, money order, EFTPOS or credit card.

If lodging by post, include a cheque or money order made out to the 'Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy'. Do not send cash through the mail.

We will send you a lodgement summary once your payment has been received. It will show the dealing numbers and type, description, lodgement date and time, first title reference, assessed fee and receipted fee plus lodger details.

Correct order of lodgement

The correct order of lodgement will vary depending on the circumstances. The lodger is responsible for ensuring Titles Registry forms are lodged in the correct order of priority. Dealings will be requisitioned to rectify the order of lodgement where necessary.

What happens next

We will check your form to make sure it meets all our requirements. If there is a deficiency with your lodgement, we will send you a requisition notice (see the next page in this guide for details).

If your form meets our requirements, we will record the notice on the title.

How long does processing take?

Most correctly prepared notices are processed within our service time of 3-5 working days.

You can use the dealing number on your lodgement summary to check the status of your lodgement using our online dealing status search enquiry.
