Land Court fees

Regulatory fees

Our fees and charges typically increase on 1 July each year. On 1 July 2024, our fees and charges were indexed by zero per cent (i.e. remain unchanged from 2023-24) in line with the Government’s indexation policy. You can contact us to find out details about specific fees, charges or prices.

From 1 July 2022 fees are stated in fee regulations as fee units and not in dollars.

The current value of a fee unit for court fees is $1.060 (see s2 of the Acts Interpretation (Fee Unit) Regulation 2022 and s48B of the Acts Interpretation Act 1954). Please note the rounding rules that apply under s48C of the Acts Interpretation Act 1954.

See the schedule to the Land Court Regulation 2021 for details of the fee units and rounding rules. GST is not applicable to these fees.
