Buying a property

When a property in Port Phillip is purchased or ownership is transferred, we need to be told. To do this, lodge the Notice of Acquisition form.

This helps us to keep track of who owns each property in Port Phillip.

The State Revenue Office must be informed within 28 days to work out land transfer duty (or stamp duty).

Selling a property

If you are selling a property your solicitor or conveyancer must organise a Land Information Certificate (LIC).
