Transferring ownership of a property
The Landgate form to transfer ownership of a property is the Transfer of Land form.
When buying or selling property you can either engage with a settlement agent or solicitor who will conduct the transfer of land process on your behalf. Or you can submit the Transfer of Land form to Landgate as a self-represented party.
Please note: Landgate is unable to provide advice on how to complete your Transfer of Land form. Please speak to a settlement agent, conveyancer or solicitor should you require information of this nature.
Landgate is unable to accept the Transfer of Land form by email. The original document must be presented in person or post (any person can lodge the document).
No. However, it is strongly recommended. A settlement agent will complete the necessary applications required by government departments and ensure that the transfer of land is done correctly.
A self-represented party is an individual who is not represented by a settlement agent or a solicitor, and is instead conducting the transfer of land application process on their own.
VOI stands for verification of Identity. It is an identification process that ensures you are who you say you are. VOI is required to complete the transfer of land and is in place to prevent illegal land transactions. Settlement agents and solicitors can complete a VOI for you. Self-represented parties will need to engage with Australia Post and complete a VOI application. To discover other ways to best protect your title in WA, visit our Fraud prevention page.
