NSW LPI Introduction of requisition fees

No. 2016/15 December 2016

Land and Property Information (LPI) will commence charging fees for requisitions sent in relation to documents, plans and associated instruments lodged for registration from 1 January 2017. This was first announced in LPI Circular 2016/05.

  • Real Property Amendment (Fees) Regulation 2016:
    • 29A For a requisition sent by the Registrar-General requiring correction, re-execution or the supply of additional information in support of a dealing, application, request or caveat lodged for registration or recording
  • Conveyancing (General) Amendment (Fees) Regulation 2016:
    • 31A For a requisition sent by the Registrar-General requiring correction, re-execution or the supply of additional information in support of a plan or associated instrument lodged for registration or recording

Fees

  • Requisition in relation to a dealing, application, request or caveat: $50
  • Requisition in relation to a plan or associated instrument: $100

Note:

  • The number of items to be addressed in the requisition will not increase the fee.
  • Notice of intended registration or intended rejection will not incur a fee.
  • General correspondence will not incur a fee.

In what circumstances will a requisition fee be cancelled or refunded?

Requisition fees will only be cancelled or refunded if, after review, it is determined that the requisition(s) should not have been sent.

All requisitions sent in relation to the document, plan or associated instrument must be waived before the fee will be cancelled/refunded.

What do I do if I disagree with the requisition?

The lodging party or surveyor of the requisitioned document, plan or associated instrument must complete a Request for Review of Requisition form providing details of the requisition(s) for review.

The completed form must be returned to LPI within the requisition timeframe and prior to registration.

The lodging party or surveyor will be notified of the outcome of the review.
