Changing your address - certificate of title
If you own a property you should advise the Lands Titles Office (LTO) as soon as you change your residential, postal or company address. If you don't do this your old address will remain on the certificate of title, and notices such as water bills and council rates will continue to be sent to your old address. There is no fee to change your address on a certificate of title.
If you are selling the property you don't need to register a change of address.
1. Complete an application form
The 'Lodged by' and 'Correction to' fields on the first page of the form must be completed and include the name and address of the person to whom the application is to be returned for correction should the LTO send a formal requisition notice.
Please note that the address information you provide is used for publicly searchable registers and indexes. Should you believe that your safety may be put at risk by having your address displayed in the results of a search of LTO records using your name, you can submit to the Registrar-General an Application for Name Search Suppression. For more information please visit our suppress your address on name searches of LTO records webpage.
All LTO forms must be printed in black ink on white, A4, 80-gsm paper and printed on both sides. If you don't have access to a duplex printer, use the manual feed option to produce a double-sided copy.
2. Lodge the application
Lodge your completed application with Land Services either in person or by registered post. No fee is charged.
