It is recommended that leases in the Northern Territory be registered. This is to ensure that the Tenant’s lease interest in the land is protected if the land is sold to a third party in the future. A third party purchaser of the Land will be bound to the terms of the Lease if it is registered.
Leases under 3 years are not required to be registered.
To register your Lease, you will need to forward the following documents to the Northern Territory Land Titles Office:-
1. Lease Form 31. This form can be downloaded from the Northern Territory Land Titles Office here:-
2. The signed Lease annexed to the Form 31;
3. Certificate of Title;
4. Plan (only required where the Tenant is leasing a part of the land only);
This is not intended to be a definitive guide to registering your Lease. You can obtain more information by calling the Land Titles Office on (08) 8999 6520.
