Office Circular No. 4/2020

DATE:   2 June 2020

CIRCULAR MEMORANDUM: 4/2020

DISTRIBUTION:  GENERAL

SUBJECT: Land Titles Office Fees and Services Update

Fees

Government has directed that the Land Titles Office (LTO) CPI fee increases scheduled for 1 July 2020 will not proceed.  This means, that until further notice, fees will remain at their present rate.

The LTO fee schedule is outlined at the bottom of this document.

COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 the LTO public counter will continue to be closed for the foreseeable future.  Lodgements are to be made by way of Australia Post, Ausdoc Document Exchange Service, or by delivery to the appropriate locked box on the ground floor of 134 Macquarie Street Hobart.

 

While a significant number of LTO staff are working remotely the LTO is continuing to carry out all its functions as expeditiously as possible.  As a consequence of the limited number of staff located in the office there may be times throughout the day where it is not possible for every call to be answered, in which case an answering service will inform the caller to call-back later or email the enquiry to the Titles Enquiries email address.  In any event it is preferred that enquiries are made by way of email to titles.enquiries@dpipwe.tas.gov.au

 

It is reiterated that enquiries relating to the registration of plans and dealings should be made only by the lodging party.
