Important change from 1 July 2017

From 1 July 2017, these forms will be replaced by the digital duties form.

General information

Duties Online (DOL) makes it easy for customers or their representatives to electronically lodge all land transfers and declarations of trust.

Regular professional lodgers involved in the property conveyancing industry should apply to become a DOL registered user.

Members of the public who are not using a DOL registered user (usually a solicitor or conveyancer) and wish to lodge electronically as an individual can do so after a simple registration process.
