Bulletin No. 291 | 24 May 2017
National Mortgage Form
Land Registries across Australia have collaborated to develop a National Mortgage Form for implementation in all states and territories.
Landgate will accept lodgement of the new National Mortgage Form from Monday 29 May 2017 onwards. It will be available online as an electronic form. Users can complete the details and generate a printable PDF, at https://www.landgate.wa.gov.au/titles-and-surveys/forms-and-fees/land-titling-forms.
In Western Australia, the National Mortgage Form is scheduled for deployment in the PEXA Electronic Lodgement Network Operator system from 22 July 2017.
There will be a transition period until 31 December 2017, during which mortgages can be lodged using either the National Mortgage Form or current mortgage forms. From 1 January 2018, all mortgages must be lodged using the National Mortgage Form.
The National Mortgage Form is a significant national initiative designed to standardise the common content and presentation of mortgages lodged for registration through all lodgement channels with land registries in all Australian states and territories.
The Australian Registrars’ National Electronic Conveyancing Council has published the National Mortgage Form specification and the WA addendum which is available its website at https://www.arnecc.gov.au/publications/national-mortgage.
