Fees and lodgement
Checklist of what to include
Make sure your application includes all the required information and documents:
- Form 4 - Request to record death (completed, signed, dated and witnessed)
- evidence of the death (original or certified copy)
- 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 register your dealing and send you a registration confirmation statement. If you have provided us with an email address in the 'lodger details' section of the form, we will send this by email; otherwise we will send it to you by normal post.
How long does registration take?
Most correctly prepared dealings are registered 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.
