Landgate: VOI Practice

Landgate: VOI Practice

On 2 January 2013 full compliance with the Western Australian Registrar and Commissioner of Titles Joint Practice: Verification of Identity (“VOI Practice”) is expected for all specified documents lodged at Landgate. The VOI Practice applies to the parties specified and to these document types:

  • Transfer of Land;
  • Mortgage;
  • Request for Duplicate Certificate of Title;
  • Application for Replacement or Lost Duplicate Certificate of Title;
  • Transmission Application;
  • Survivorship Application; and
  • Power of Attorney (except those made under the Guardianship and Administration Act 1990 (WA)).

When a natural person is executing a document on behalf of a company or other incorporated/statutory body, the conveyancer/lawyer/mortgagee must satisfy themselves as a reasonable person that:

  • the body exists at the time of execution; and
  • the signatory is a current officer of the body and has proper authority.

Please contact us for any further information on these or other current issues.
