Payment options vary depending on whether a customer is a regular customer (one with a Victorian Online Title System customer lodgement code) or a non-regular customer (one without a customer lodgement code).
From regular customers, Land Use Victoria accepts cash, direct debit, bank cheques, lawyers' and conveyancers' trust or office account cheques, and Visa or MasterCard debit or credit cards.
Land Use Victoria does not accept third party or personal cheques, or money orders. From non-regular customers, Land Use Victoria accepts cash and Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards. Land Use Victoria does not accept cheques of any description or money orders from non-regular customers.
Mail lodgements are accepted from non-regular customers only. Regular customers must lodge personally or through a lodging agent. For a lodgement submitted by mail, Visa or MasterCard credit card is the only acceptable payment method.
The customer must provide a daytime phone number on the document(s) to be lodged and/or the daytime phone number in a covering letter. A Land Use Victoria representative will call the customer after lodgement of the dealing(s) to process an EFTPOS credit card payment. Payment will be confirmed over the phone and no written record will be retained of the card used in the transaction. A receipt will be sent by mail.
