What is Mortgage Registration Fee, Transfer Fee, and How Much is Payable?

The Mortgage Registration Fee is a charge by the State or Territory land titles office to register the lender’s mortgage on the property’s title record, and is paid by the borrower in full at the time a loan is transacted. Should you default on your loan to the limits of bank policy, the registration of the mortgage against the bank will allow them to take ownership.

The Title Transfer Fee is a state/territory government fee for transferring the property title from the seller to the buyer. The cost can vary significantly depending on the location and/or state or territory of the property.

Purchasing a home is an administrative-intensive process that still relies on administration workers filling old-school manila folders and filing away documents in archaic filing cabinets. Given the reliance on this manual labour there are still fees to cover this process. The market is progressively moving towards a technology-driven system, but until then we’re charged various fees, such as the Mortgage Registration fee.
