Payment options vary depending on whether a customer is a regular customer (one with a Victorian Online Title System customer lodgment code) or a non-regular customer (one without a customer lodgment code).
For a regular customer the preferred method of payment is direct debit. Customers can arrange this by completing the Direct debit request form. When completing your account details, please check against a recent statement from your financial institution.
For more information on using direct debit as a form of payment please see the Fees and direct debit page at www.propertyandlandtitles.vic.gov.au. If you are unsure how to complete the form, please check with your financial institution. Regular customers can also pay by cash, debit card or credit card.
A non-regular customer can only pay with cash, credit card (Visa or Mastercard only) or debit card.
Customers (regular and non-regular) wishing to pay by credit or debit card 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 lodgment of the dealing(s) to process an EFTPOS 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.
Land Use Victoria does not accept cheques or money orders as methods of payment.
Mail lodgments are accepted from non-regular customers only. Regular customers must lodge personally or through a lodging agent. For a lodgment submitted by mail, Visa or Mastercard credit card is the only acceptable payment method.
Why choose direct debit?
Simple and convenient - no more waiting in queues or posting cheques. Just complete the form once and you will conveniently take care of all future payments.
Saves you money - no cheque or postage charges.
How does it work?
A direct debit will be processed against your nominated bank account to the value of transactions lodged at Land Use Victoria on that day.
Because your transaction amount may vary each month, direct debit will enable you to easily pay your account without having to make adjustments at your bank.
