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 1 - Transfer (completed, signed, dated and witnessed)
  • Form 24 - Property information (completed)
  • Form 25 - Foreign ownership information (for foreign persons only: completed, signed, dated and witnessed)
  • duty has been accounted for on the transfer with the Office of State Revenue
  • paper certificate of title (if one is currently issued)
  • the written contract, court order or agreement (original or certified copy) if the consideration is non-monetary
  • payment by cheque (if applicable).

Transfer duty

Please note: All transfers must have a duty notation even if no transfer duty is payable.

Transfer duty may be payable to the Office of State Revenue. Read our transfer duty guides to find out when transfer duty applies and how to lodge documents for stamping.

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.
