Land Titles Office Forms

Customers of Land Titles office in all jurisdictions should not be creating or recreated their own copies of Land Titles Office Forms, where they are being used manually or as part of Document Preparation systems. All Jurisdictions have Regulations and Compliance for the correct use of Approved Forms

An Approved From is one that is either;

  • Prepared and generated via the Authorities own Website
  • Use of a Licenced Form correctly populated.

A Licenced Form is one that has been prepared and submitted to the Authority for Approval to use, with formal approval in writing.

NB: Many Authorities often require the Approval Number on the Form when it's not a Standard Dealing Form from their website.

Authorities have been increasing their focus on forms, so it's a critical time to check and validate that ALL Land forms are approved.

The use of non-approved forms may result in a Requisition or Refusal of the Form at Lodgement, and Requisition Fees may be payable.

Please consult Titles Offices direct to validate forms
