We are seeking feedback on proposals that would see changes to fees charged for survey and property title services.

This follows a review of charges in response to rising service delivery costs and lower than anticipated property market activity.    

Fees cover the cost of providing these services as well as the cost of maintaining and upgrading Landonline and the wider regulatory processes LINZ manages which ensure the integrity and security of New Zealand’s property system.  

In proposed changes:

  • The current fee of $90 for a simple residential title transaction (with a mortgage) would rise to $117.  
  • The fee for checking the compliance of a complex cadastral survey would increase from approximately $850 to $1,130.  
  • The fee to search electronically for a title or survey plan would move from $6 to $9 per search.  

A discussion document setting out proposals and options is available below.

Any fee increases would likely take effect from February 2025, pending consultation and Cabinet approval.
