Applications For Lost Title

Applications for lost titles are made for a variety of reasons, including fire, flood and even misplacing them are some of the reasons. After a title is lost, it is very important to get it replaced as soon as possible by following the right procedures. To remedy such an inconvenience, such as losing your property or getting tricked by fraudulent people, you must take the necessary steps to get back your lost title.

Why should you replace your lost title?

The title of your property will be needed whenever you are required to prove that you are its owner. In case your Certificate of Title is a tangible one, instances to prove your ownership may include:

  • Selling your property
  • Applying for a mortgage loan
  • Leasing your property

Information to be provided to recover the title

  • The events that have resulted in the loss of property.
  • Identification of the title of the ‘property’ has to be done. This can also be with reference to a plan of the building.
  •  Explanation regarding the steps that you have taken to recover the title shall also be provided.

Note also that the conversion of paper Certificates of Title to electronic, paperless Certificates of Title is currently in progress in Victoria. This means that, eventually, there will be no paper Certificates of Title. If your land title has previously been converted to an electronic Certificate of Title, a new Certificate of Title will not be issued to you in paper form.
