Your lease will still be valid even if it is not registered. However, we recommend leases over 3 years be registered to protect the Tenant’s interest in the land should the property be sold to a third party (ss 71, 184 & 185(1)(b) Land Titles Act, 1994).
To register the Lease, you will need to lodge the following at QLD Department of Lands together with the necessary lodgement fee:-
1. The Certificate of Title (if issued).
2. Form 7 Registration of Lease. This form can be downloaded from the Department of Lands website here:-
3. Lease in Form 21 Annexure (follows).
This is not a definitive guide to registering your Lease. For more information, contact the Department of Lands, or refer to their Directions on completing the Form 7 and other general information that can be downloaded from the Department of Lands website here:-
