Consultation has started on fees for land title products and services

23 March 2018

Land Information New Zealand is consulting on the fees charged for searching and registering a property transaction. It’s proposed that these fees for land title products and services remain at current rates.

The existing title fees are set out by the Land Transfer Regulations 2002. When the Land Transfer Act 2017 is enacted at the end of 2018, those regulations will be revoked: the replacement regulations will use language that reflects the terminology of the new Act.

While LINZ is proposing that the fees don’t change, the descriptions of some products and services are changing as a result of the Land Transfer Act 2017; for example, a “certificate of title” is now a “record of title” reflecting the services in new digital environment.

LINZ is keen to hear your views on the questions and proposal in this paper.

Consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 27 April 2018.
